       Title: Raw Fish Salad (Japanese Sashimi)
  Categories: Japanese, Seafood
       Yield: 9 servings
  
       1 lb Bass (raw) or:
            - Tuna (raw) or: other
            - fish of your choice, fresh
            - water or salt, bones and
            - skin removed and slivered
     1/2 c  Gingerroot, fresh, chopped
            -or: 1/4 c powdered ginger
     1/2 c  Horseradish, grated
     1/2 c  Mustard sauce or: 1/4 c
            - mustard powder
            Water, for mixing sauce
            - ingredients
            Bowl of very fresh salad
            - greens, broken or cut into
            - small pieces
  
   In this popular dish, the Japanese enjoy eating their
   fish completely raw, cut in slivers about 1/4 inch
   thick, and dipped into a mixture of fresh chopped
   gingerroot, grated horseradish and mustard.  We add
   dishes of very fresh greens, turning the Sashimi into
   a salad.
   
   If your fish is very, very fresh, your dishes colorful
   and attractively arranged, and if you accompany your
   first bite of raw fish with a generous mouthful of
   crisp greens, you will probably be able to overcome
   your prejudices and discover what the Japanese have
   known for centuries: fish doesn't have to be cooked to
   taste good.
   
   INSTRUCTIONS: Set out the slivered fish, 3 dishes of
   seasonings and salad greens and let everyone mix his
   own sauce, tasting and testing as he does, and help
   himself to greens.
