To give you more insight into the international influences on our food choices, keep reading to learn about different global eats: types of raw fish from around the world.

The Benefits of Eating Raw Fish

Cooked or raw, fish is well-known for being very heart-healthy. It is rich in protein, vitamins, and powerful nutrients like Omega-3s, Vitamin D and calcium. On top of this, it also helps keep your cholesterol levels in check. However, cooking fish tends to decrease the amount of protein, and it impacts the Omega-3 content.

It should be known that uncooked seafood has been linked to food-borne illnesses. This makes it even more important to eat your sushi from a trusted source. We serve only the freshest, highest quality fish here at Sukhothai Miami Beach, and food prep and safety are two top priorities.

Raw Fish Dishes are Growing in Popularity

Some of the most popular raw fish used as dish bases in many Asian restaurants include tuna, salmon, shrimp, crab, scallops, eel, white fish and clams. While not all sushi is comprised of raw fish, most people prefer to eat theirs in the form of a sushi roll.

Some of the most popular types of raw fish dishes include:

  • Sashimi: Thinly sliced raw seafood; popular in Japanese cuisine
  • Carpaccio: thin slices of marinated fish; Italian roots, and it typically consists of raw beef
  • Ceviche: cold, citrus-cooked seafood; popular in Latin America
  • Tartare: chopped or minced raw fish with a binding agent; French roots, and it is traditionally made from raw beef
  • Poke: Hawaiian salad with cubed raw fish
  • Gravlax: a Nordic dish made of raw salmon cold-cured in salt, sugar and dill
