An attractive platter of sparkling sashimi is hard to resist. At Frozen Fish Direct, you will find a large selection of sashimi-grade fish, selected by experts and proven to be the best. But what exactly is sashimi-grade fish?
Sashimi Grade Fish
Fish classified as sashimi grade is of superior quality. Considering that the fish will be served and eaten raw, any imperfections or flaws will be detected; it must be of perfect taste and texture.
Sashimi refers to a pierced fish’s body and had its origin in traditional fishing, which entailed poking the brain and flash-freezing it. As a result, the flesh of the fish is preserved to the greatest extent by limited lactic acid contact.
1. More is better when it comes to size
A larger strip of sashimi, thinly sliced meat, is better for cutting to shape since it allows for greater control.
2. Top sashimi fish
Our top-rated, Sashimi grade salmon, bluefin tuna and kingfish make up the majority of the sashimi fish and seafood available to customers.
3. Back or belly
The two most popular sashimi cuts are the back and the belly. How do they differ? Many experienced sashimi eaters prefer the belly because it contains more oil. The back is preferable as a way to begin for beginners since it is thicker.
