Halibut Sushi, No Soy Sauce!

Pin It


One of my favorite fish for sushi is Halibut. The other white fish that I like is Red Snapper or Tai. Most restaurants serve white fish with ponzu, a citrus soy sauce. When I worked the sushi bar, I used it on everything.

Halibut Sushi
Served with Lemon and Salt


If it's really good fish, I ask the sushi chef to put on some sea salt and a squeeze of lemon without using any soy sauce. It really brings out the flavor of the fish.

Having white fish served in this manner is one of the 'tells' that a sushi chef uses to size up the customer if he/she is a sushi expert of not. Lost count how many people told me the same and didn't know how to dip nigiri sushi in the soy sauce dish.
