A day in the life of a Chef Man


Many Japanese restaurants offer a house sashimi plate that includes an array of different fish, although it is often possible for dinerer to design their own plate. In this instance, it is important for the customer to know the Japanese names of the fish. Salmon is referred to as sake, tuna is maguro, and fatty tuna is toro. Saba refers to mackerel, while yellowtail fish is hamachi. Of course, this dish is not exclusively fish. Squid, or ika, and tako, which means octopus, can also be included. While sashimi is almost always a raw dish, shrimp is often served as a cooked addition. Cooked shrimp is known as ebi.
