Nobu's New Style Sashimi


New-style sashimi, one of Nobuyuki Matsuhisa's trademark dishes, was invented when a customer sent a plate of sashimi back to the kitchen because he didn't like raw fish; the recipe was Nobu's solution to the problem.

  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 3 ounces sashimi-quality fluke fillet, thinly sliced crosswise on the diagonal
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • Ginger, peeled and finely julienned, to taste
  • Chives, cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil


  1. In a small skillet over medium heat, cook sesame seeds until fragrant and golden. Remove to a small bowl.

  2. Arrange fish on a plate. Rub with garlic. Sprinkle ginger and chives over fish. Drizzle with soy sauce and lemon juice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  3. Heat olive and sesame oils in a small saucepan until they begin to smoke. Pour over fish; the hot oil will sear the fish as it makes contact.
