Chicken Sashimi is a Thing Now and No Thank You

Why ... just why?

Any person who has ever had sushi is familiar with sashimi, a traditional Japanese dish. Sushi and sashimi of course, is served completely raw; unless you’re animal and order a deep-fried roll of some sort. In keeping with this “raw” mentality, Food and Wine sparked a major debate on the safety of consuming the popular dish, chicken sashimi.

Let’s take a moment to let that sink in; apparently chicken sashimi has been a thing in Japan and Korea but it seems that America is just realizing it.

Christian Geideman, Ippuku restaurant chef, explains that this dish, torisashi, is completely consumable; Geideman specifies that “it has to be very fresh; they kill and chill it very quickly.”

If you’re anything like me, the first thought of chicken sashimi is immediately followed by salmonella or death but Twitter users seemed a bit divided.
