Sashimi is not and should not the sole property of Japanese gastronomy.
After all, carpaccio is nothing but a varietyof sahimi!
I remember savouring this Cinese=style sashimi for the first time in Shizuoka City in a great French restaurant!
So next time you get your hands on a nice piece of fresh white-fleshed fish, why don’t you try experiment?
Below is the method. Do experiment with quantities!
- Sole, Seabream, Snapper: a large fillet
- White leek: 1
- Fresh coriander: as appropriate
- Wantan, wonton, wuntun wrappers: as appropriate
- Peanuts: as appropriate
- Fresh ginger: as appropriate
- Lettuce: a appropriate
- Lemon or lime: as appropriate
- Peanuts oil: 2 tablespoons
- Sesame oil: 2 tablespoons
- Soy sauce: 3 tablespoons
- White leeks: 1 tablespoon (Chopped finely)
- Red chillies (sliced thin): 1
- Coriander (finely chopped): 1 tablespoon (chopped finely)
- White Sesame oil: 1 tablespoon
- -Cut the fish into thin slices.
- -Cut the white leek into very thin strips, leave in water for a while and drain well.
- -Cut the lettuce into 1 cm wide strips.
- -Cut the wanton wrappers into 1 cm wide strips and deep-fried until crispy. Place them on a kitchen paper to absorb excess oil and cool down.
- -Crush the peanuts in small bits.
- -Cut the fresh ginger into very thin strips, leave in clean water for a while, then drain thoroughly.
- -Prepare the sauce. in a bowl drop the soy sauce, chopped white leeks, thinly sliced red chili, chopped coriander and white sesame oil and mix well. If you warm this sauce up a little before pouring it over the fish, the flavours will be enhanced.
- -On a serving dish (look at the picture!), place the slices of fish on a bed of lettuce and sprinkle with a very small amount of salt and pepper.
- -Top with a much as you want white leek strips, ginger strips, deep-fried wanton wrappers, crushed peanuts, appropriately cut fresh coriander, lemon or lime slices and pour the sauce all over.
- -As a last optional touch, heat peanuts oil and sesame oil (2 to 1) until it smokes and pour it over the top! You could also press a lemon over the top and add more spices in the sauce!
