We all deserve a nice treat now and again, don't we? Especially so in these strange times we're living through.
When it comes to edible treats, there's nothing I like better than a bowl of sashimi! You might think it's too cold for sashimi but in fact it's eaten all through the year in Japan not just in warm weather.
This dish is easy to make as long as you can get hold of some sashimi grade raw tuna and salmon - don't try this with supermarket fish as it may not be fresh enough! Just prepare some sushi rice (see my recipe for how to make this - it's easy peasy), then slice up your raw fish, add some seafood sticks, slices of cucumber and avocado and assemble it over your sushi rice and you're done - serve with a little soy sauce and wasabi and you'll be in Japanese food nirvana!

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
