Usually, when we hear the word sashimi, the only thing that comes to our mind is fish. The sashimi made of fish is famous, but little did you know that there is horse sashimi as well as chicken sashimi; and now, we have frog sashimi too.
In line with the name, this dish has entirely a frog as its focus. Although it might be a delight for everyone who loves trying different types of non-vegetarian food, but a whole lot of people consider it as animal cruelty. These activists feel that the way in which it is prepared is actually a disrespectful technique which should be stopped as soon as possible.
There are very few restaurants in Tokyo which serve frog sashimi and they are one of the finest ones. The frogs used in frog sashimi are not actually frog; the specimens used in this dish are actually bull frogs which are exclusively brooded for this dish. These frogs are raised effectively and are extremely safe to consume. Apart from the safety concerns, the taste of this frog shashimi dish is extremely unbeatable, or so the consumers have to say about it.
The best part about this dish is that it is not cooked with frozen meat or any other frozen non vegetarian ingredient. The frogs are freshly caught from the breeder and then they are live skinned to give it a perfect texture and tendency. These frogs are kept alive in the kitchen as long as someone places an order for this dish. However, the technique used for cooking the frog shashimi is not very deemed as moral by everybody. Initially, the people who ordered this dish believed that it would be something heavy and rich. But, they were amazed after tasting this wonderful dish, as it was too light as well as fresh to taste.
When chicken sashimi was taken into consideration, this dish was extremely light as compared to the former. The best part about this dish is its presentation and garnishing. The way in which it is presented has won the hearts of many. It is healthy because it has lesser fat as compared to other dishes. After taking out the sashimi bits from the core ingredient bull frog, the rest of the part is not wasted. You would love to know that a slurry and creamy soup is prepared from the left over part and it is unbelievably tasty, just like the main course dish. Be it garnish, or presentation, this dish is one of the most preferred dishes when we talk about sashimi. So, for anybody in the game of trying out new dishes and animals, you must have this when in Japan.
