Sashimi Box, Serves 4
Sashimi is the grade given to the freshest possible catch and is generally served raw. Our sashimi box includes three of our favourite fresh fish cuts, perfect for serving at a sushi dinner. The box serves 4 people and includes:
Hiramasa, also known as Kingfish, is a high-quality sashimi grade Yellowtail Kingfish which is farmed under strict, high standards to make it some of the best sashimi grade fish out there. The fish is firm with large flakes, pale pink in colour, with a rich and subtly sweet flavour. In Japan, the fisherman go to great lengths and hand pack the fish to ensure that the delicate flesh doesn’t bruise. The high oil content in the loin of the Hiramasa fish is what gives it its buttery, rich texture and delicately sweet taste.
Please be aware that the Hiramasa is sourced from Australia, so has been frozen. Please note that this particular fish will arrive fresh, from frozen so can't be refrozen.
Beautiful, delicate salmon in its freshest state is perfect for serving as sashimi or sushi. If you are looking to prepare a fresh, aromatic tartare, don't feel you need to add too many extra flavours because this salmon can speak for itself.
When they are landed the tuna are inspected and a sample is taken from the fish. The colour determines whether they can be sold as sashimi or not, ensuring that you are getting the best quality in this top classification.
To go with the sashimi, we have also included a tube of wasabi paste, Hiyashi Wakame Seaweed salad, pickled sushi ginger, and 2 year old Soy sauce - all components are essential seasonings that brings salty, sweet and deliciously hot and spicy flavours to accompany the fish so well.
