Hirame Sashimi/平目(ひらめ、ヒラメ)の刺身

Japanese Food
My daughter had kept telling me for months that she wanted to have hirame (left-eyed flounder) sashimi. Today, I finally gave in, and bought two packs of it.

Sashimi often reminds me of some stupid foreign newspaper reporting that the Japanese were a barbarous people who ate raw fish. Didn’t they ever stop to think how much effort would be required to bring raw fish to the dinner table while keeping it safe to eat?
