Raw, part 1: sushi, kind of

Salmon raw, part 1

A short note on this raw posts: as you read, few days ago I bought a whole salmon of 2 kilos. I processed all that night, but as I’m lazy (and wise), I’ll give slow sips of what I did with it. This doesn’t mean I ate the fish, raw, after 1 week. It only means I ate it that night, took picture of it, then published it little by little…

With my sushi book at end, I cleaned and cut the salmon accordingly to sushi cuts, and ended up with several fillets. A good part of them is nicely sleeping in the freezer, ready to be cooked. Few of them were processed as raw… While I was doing it, I wished for a thin Japanese knife… And I think I begin to save money for it… May be I’ll be able to buy one before my eighty birthday…
My husband made sushi rice: he’s better than me at it! You can find many recipes for that on-line
Once cooled, decided to make some little nice bowl, lay them on individual spoons, cover them with a thin slice of salmon fillet, and add over it some berries of pink pepper… I have to say that rwa salmon and pink pepper work like a blast: they are wonderful!!!

    Salmon is my favorite type of sashimi! I can totally eat a whole platter of it by myself…in addition to a full Japanese dinner.

    Well, girls, I should reveal my secret suppliers, but for you this and more! 😉
    those little spoons, among other tremendous cute stuff, were bought at Casa, a European chain of home goodies… There aren’t any in Italy, but there are many all over France and other European countries…
