Tosa-style garlic salmon sashimi Add to ...

Sang Kim – the brains behind a popular sushi-making class, catering company, and some of the Toronto’s iconic Japanese and Korean restaurants like Ki – created this delectable “Tosa-style” (bonito-infused soy sauce) garlic salmon sashimi. Although garlic was not traditionally a staple of the Japanese diet, it was in the former province of Tosa that its farming residents discovered their love for the plant. A spoon makes an ideal serving vessel.
