Hirame Sashimi/平目(ひらめ、ヒラメ)の刺身

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?

Add a little ponzu and I can eat bowls of rice with this!!!

Yubun: As for me, I'd like to have this while sipping some good sake.
