Sashimi is a Japanese delicacy consisting of very fresh raw meat or fish sliced into thin pieces. Unlike Sushi, which consists of rice and vinegar, Sashimi allows you to taste the fish as it is. Since it is raw, you get the most of the Omega 3 benefits from eating Sashimi.

Most Sashimi are created using Tuna, salmon, sea bream, mackerel, yellowtail, squid or octopus, shrimp, scallops, clams. Some restaurants do use red meat, such as horse meat, for Sashimi.

This dish is generally safe (red raw meats and chicken less so), but women who are pregnant and those with compromised immune systems should be careful or avoid the dish altogether.
