To make this salmon sashimi recipe it is essential that we have good knives. The first thing we will do is wash and dry the fish piece well. Then we remove the skin and the flesh of darker color. We will also have to remove the fat attached to our fish.

After this we must cut the salmon into cubes, always against the whitish "lines" that we see in the fish. Taking this into account will be essential when eating this dish, if we do not do well, it will be "threads" elongated in our mouth.

Now we can cut our pink-orange fish into steaks (not too fat, not too thin) to serve as sashimi.

Do not forget that to make this recipe it is important to have both a good support table and a good knife for this type of fish.

The most essential thing in preparing this recipe is to learn how to cut the tuna so as not to spoil the piece of fish and be able to eat tuna sashimi.

We must look at the skin of the fish, and cut perpendicular to it. We will cut "blocks" that will be more or less than 3 centimeters wide by about 5 high. From here we will cut sheets (not too thin). The most important thing is that we have a base or board to lean on well and a knife that allows us to make a clean cut.

If we cut against the fiber (whitish lines that we find in this fish) we avoid that at lunchtime we find "threads", with how unpleasant that can be for the palate.

Tilapia is a freshwater fish that we can find in tropical climates, although it is currently sold in almost all places for human consumption.

Let's see how to cut this fish for tilapia sashimi:

We clean the fish by removing the skin and the darkest parts. In this way we will have a piece of whitish meat that will be what we will turn into fillets to eat raw.

We must be careful when making the cut and do it perpendicular to the white "threads" that this meat contains. As we have also commented with the previous fish we must have in our kitchen with a good knife as well as a good support to make this cut correctly.

How to present the sashimi.

We already have the fish cut, but how do we present it? We can use different containers to serve our salmon sashimi; a bowl, a slate, a big white plate …

Anyway, it should always be accompanied by wasabi, soy sauce and ginger.

The wasabi can be put as a mountain on one side of our plate, bowl or slate.

The soy sauce to be liquid we will have to deposit it in a small bowl that we will also place inside our plate.

And with soy sauce we can create a kind of flower to give a touch of glamor to our delicious recipe.

It can also be accompanied by ponzu sauce, a vinaigrette based on rice vinegar and yuzu (a fruit of citrus aroma very desired in Japan). This vinaigrette will add a touch of freshness to our recipe.

In addition, as we see in the image below we can decorate with small roe that will give a touch of distinction to our presentation or with daikon which as we said above is a typical radish from Japan.
