What is Sashimi Grade Salmon?

Sashimi is a Japanese delicacy consisting of thin slices of fresh, raw fish that is typically served with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger. Salmon sashimi grade, in particular, is a popular choice due to its rich flavour and buttery texture.

The good news is that you can buy whole sushi grade salmon sides at Fine Food Specialist.

How to Prepare Salmon Sashimi?

Preparing salmon sashimi involves careful selection of fresh, high-quality salmon and precise cutting techniques to create delicate, thin slices suitable for sashimi. Here's a basic guide to preparing salmon sashimi at home:

Ingredients and Equipment:

  1. Fresh salmon fillet (sushi-grade)
  2. Sharp chef's knife
  3. Cutting board
  4. Damp cloth or paper towel

Instructions:

  • Choose High-Quality Salmon: Select sushi-grade salmon from Fine Food Specialist.
  • Prepare the Fish: Start by rinsing the salmon under cold water and pat it dry gently with a paper towel or a clean, damp cloth. Use a sharp, long chef's knife to cut the salmon into manageable blocks. Remove any bones if present.
  • Slice the Salmon: Place the salmon block skin-side down on the cutting board. With a smooth, single stroke, slice the salmon at a 45-degree angle against the grain to create thin, uniform slices. Aim for slices approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
  • Serve Immediately: Arrange the slices attractively on a chilled plate or platter. Serve the salmon sashimi immediately with accompaniments like wasabi, pickled ginger and soy sauce for dipping.

Tips:

  • Keep the salmon and your equipment cold throughout the process to maintain freshness and ease of slicing. Chilling the salmon in the freezer for a short time (about 30 minutes) before slicing can make it easier to achieve thin, clean cuts.
  • Sharpen your knife beforehand to ensure clean and precise slicing. A sharp knife is crucial for achieving thin, smooth slices without tearing the fish.
  • Ensure hygiene and cleanliness during the preparation process to prevent cross-contamination. Clean and sanitize your cutting board and knife before and after slicing the salmon.

Salmon Sashimi Recipe Ideas

Our packs of salmon supremes are boneless and come with the skins still on. They work beautifully when pan-fried and are perfectly complimented by parsnip mash. Our fillets can also be baked in parchment, providing another exciting option for your culinary arsenal.

The truth is not only is sashimi grade salmon delicious, but it is also incredibly nutritious. Salmon is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which can help lower your risk of heart disease, improve brain function and support overall health.

Salmon Sashimi Calories

The number of calories in salmon sashimi can vary depending on factors like portion size and the specific cut of salmon used. On average, a 3-ounce (85 grams) serving of raw salmon sashimi typically contains around 120-140 calories. This estimation is for just the salmon itself without any added sauces or accompaniments. Salmon is known for being a nutritious fish, rich in protein, healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids and various vitamins and minerals.

How Much Protein in Salmon Sashimi?

Because salmon sashimi is a popular dish made from raw salmon, its protein content can vary based on the size of the serving. On average, a 3-ounce (85 grams) serving of raw Atlantic salmon contains around 17-18 grams of protein. However, these values can slightly differ depending on the specific species of salmon and other factors.

Remember that the nutritional content of salmon sashimi may also vary based on how it's prepared or served, so the protein content could be slightly different in various restaurant servings or homemade dishes.

Can You Cook Salmon Sashimi?

Here are a few ways to cook salmon that may mimic the flavours and textures you enjoy in sashimi:

  • Pan-searing: Heat a skillet with a bit of oil over medium-high heat. Season the salmon with salt, pepper and any preferred herbs or spices. Sear the salmon for a few minutes on each side until it's cooked to your desired doneness.
  • Baking: Preheat your oven to around 375°F (190°C). Season the salmon fillet and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until the salmon is cooked through but still moist.
  • Grilling: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Brush the salmon with oil and season it. Grill the salmon for a few minutes on each side until it's cooked to your liking.

Remember that cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the salmon fillet, so always check for doneness. Cooking salmon can alter its texture and taste compared to sashimi, but it can still be delicious and flavorful when prepared well.

When enjoying salmon for sushi, it's important to choose high-quality, fresh fish. At Fine Food Specialist, we carefully select our salmon to ensure it is of the highest quality and sustainably sourced. Our salmon is delivered fresh to your door, ready for you to slice and enjoy.

Can You Make Sashimi from Frozen Salmon?

Yes, you can make sashimi from frozen salmon, but there are a few essential considerations:

  • Quality of Salmon: Use high-quality salmon, preferably sushi-grade or labelled safe for raw consumption. Freezing doesn't necessarily compromise the safety or taste of salmon if it's frozen properly and thawed correctly.
  • Freezing Process: Freezing salmon at ultra-low temperatures (-31°F or -35°C) for an extended period helps kill potential parasites, ensuring it's safer for raw consumption. It's recommended to freeze the salmon for an adequate period before making sashimi.
  • Thawing: Thaw frozen salmon properly in the refrigerator. Slow, controlled thawing helps maintain the fish's texture and quality. Avoid thawing salmon at room temperature as rapid temperature changes can affect its texture and safety.
  • Freshness: Even when using frozen salmon, aim to consume it as soon as it's thawed to retain its freshness and flavour. Frozen salmon may not have the same texture and taste as fresh, but if handled and thawed correctly, it can still be as enjoyable as sashimi.

Always follow safe handling practices when preparing raw fish for consumption. If you're uncertain about the freezing and thawing process or the quality of the fish, it might be better to consult with a seafood expert or choose fresh fish for sashimi preparation.
