How To Make Sashimi At Home?

Making sashimi at home is relatively easy and only requires a few ingredients. The most important ingredient is fresh fish or meat. It is important to use high-quality fish that has been properly refrigerated. Once you have your ingredients, follow these steps:

Step One: Cut the Fish or Meat into Thin Slices

The first step is to cut the fish or meat into thin slices. The slices should be about ¼ inch thick. If you are using a filet, it is important to cut against the grain.


Step Two: Arrange the Slices on a Plate

Once the fish or meat is sliced, arrange the slices on a plate. You can arrange them in a single layer or overlap them slightly.

Step Three: Add Soy Sauce and Pickled Ginger (optional)

Soy sauce and pickled ginger are common accompaniments for sashimi. To add soy sauce, simply place a small amount in a dipping bowl. Pickled ginger can be added to the plate or served on the side.

That’s all there is to it! Now you know how to make sashimi at home. Try it for yourself and see why we love this Japanese delicacy so much!
