This beautiful recipe is from the book Asian Flavors by Wendy Sweetser. It is one of the best cookbooks I have used covering a variety of Asian regions.

One of my favorite Japanese foods is sashimi. Think of it as sushi without the rice. Japanese food is more than a way to fill one’s stomach. It is art and balance too. If you are in Houston,¬† the place to shop for Japanese groceries is Nippan Daido. You can learn to create your own Japanese food for 75% less than restaurant prices. Which is a great thing for those of us who do not have deep pockets.

The following plate I put together  has:

Amaebi- Sweet Shrimp, Tai- Red Snapper, Saki-Salmon, Maguro-Tuna, Saba-Mackeral, Tako-Octopus, Ika-Cuttlefish, Fried Quail Egg, Radish, Carrot, Cucumber, and Avocado.
