Oooh...my son's favourite. He started eating sashimi when he was around that age or even younger. I can't remember. But I do remember giving him small pieces at first (he loves to eat fish since he was a baby) and there is no stopping him from walloping sashimi now when we eat Japanese food. He is now 12. :D

Aiyah, I thought....this topic.... I thought.... -_- がっかりしました... :cry: :wink:

I think sashimi is good for people in general - after all, the Japanese philosophy is to partake of nature's goodness in as original and untampered form as possible. Cooking, as we already know, besides killing germs (most of the time), also destroys nutrients. Sashimi and green tea are probably the reasons the Japanese are the longest lived people in the world.

We have yet to convince DD to eat sashimi. She's very fussy. Would appreciate any tips. Actually, even for myself, sashimi only learnt to eat sashimi a few years ago; and only last year did I truly understand how good sashimi can be, courtesy of Hokkaido.

BTW Singapore sashimi is more suspect though, thanks to our poor climate - "fresh" food of any kind is rare in this country, unless you're prepared to pay.

Compliments of google translate:

がっかりしました = was disappointed ... Most times online translation may not be accurate in terms of sentence structure but good enough to decipher the meaning :D

smurf ah... sashimi thought the topic was about him :)

And to stick to the topic, my son gobbles salmon like he is drinking water. Which is good because he hardly takes anything else. That's why when we do buffet, we have to ensure there is an endless supply of salmon sashimi just so we can get back our money's worth.

The only way to get me to eat fish willingly is to give it to me raw. I don't like the smell and taste of it when it's cooked. I also hate the bones due to a number of choking incidents through my life, one of which was really bad. sashimi (my DH, not the food :politebleah:) knows this so if he wants me to eat any cooked fish at all, he has to serve me, and even then, I will eat it last so that I have enough space in my bowl/plate to mash the fish with my spoon to ensure that there are absolutely no more bones.
