7 Japanese sashimi dishes that are not made from fish

In addition to sashimi made from seafood, Japanese people can also prepare sashimi with beef, deer, chicken, pork…


Wagyu beef with a marble-like texture is an ingredient that every steak lover loves.

Unlike seafood sashimi dishes, instead of shoyu and wasabi, the raw beef is served by the chef with ponzu (soybean and vinegar sauce) on top of perilla leaves.

In addition, the Japanese also use other parts of the cow to make sashimi, such as in the Sendai region (5 hours north of Tokyo) using the cow’s head.

Raw beef liver has also become popular sashimi in Japan and is called rebasashi.
