Sashimi is a Japanese delicacy primarily consisting of fresh, untreated raw fish, even thin slices of raw beef can be included. verything is sliced into very thin pieces, but dimensions vary depending on the type of item and chef, and served immediately with only dipping sauce, soy sauce with wasabi paste and thinly sliced ginger and shredded Daikon radish. Often we mix together, here in the West, that right with Sushi.

The word sashimi means “pierced body”= sashimi = sashi pierced sticked and= mi, body, meat, may derive from the culinary ractice of sticking the fish’s tail and fin to the slices in identifying the fish being eaten.
