It is not a task to be entrusted to just anyone, because when somebody without the required degree of expertise attempts to make sushi, it can potentially lead to many problems. Nicholas Seafood employs only qualified and experienced sushi and sashimi chefs to prepare our sushi and sashimi products. This is how you can be fully confident of the high quality and superior taste of the products you buy from us.
To become competent in making sashimi requires years of training. There are all kinds of delicate techniques that must be learned, ensuring a visually appealing, great tasting, and ultimately safe product.
Though you probably wouldn't think it, making sashimi involves a lot more than simply being able to slice thinly. The process of making the perfect sashimi begins the moment the fish is caught. Fish to be used for sashimi must be handled with special care, very differently from the average fish.
Even the selection of the knife to be used for each step is incredibly important. Then there are many special techniques to be learned, which are important for both safety and traditional reasons.
The emphasis on craftsmanship and tradition is due to the origins of sashimi as a samurai craft. The samurai, of course, are famous for their skill with a blade, but not everyone knows they invented sashimi.
Today, our sushi and sashimi chefs continue these proud traditions, while thankfully not having to perform any of the other tasks that would have been required of real samurai.
The result of their meticulous training and excruciating attention to detail is an exemplary sashimi platter. Sydney is also the perfect place for them to practice their skills, due to the high quality and availability of excellent seafood. It is what has helped us to be at the pinnacle of sashimi catering in Sydney.
Sushi is a logical progression from sashimi, but there is a great deal of difference between sashimi and sushi. We make both the nigirizushi and makizushi styles. To suit our Australian client-base, the favoured choice uses contemporary fusion ingredients which tend to be more popular in "western" countries compared to the traditional Japanese ingredients.
The most popular styles requested by our clients are salmon and avocado, tuna and avocado, and the California roll (a futomaki style makizushi made with cucumber, avocado, and crab).
Making any style of sushi requires many skills. First, one must be proficient in the use of the sashimi bocho, meaning it's not really possible to be a great sushi chef unless one is first a great sashimi chef. Proper food handling practices must be followed, and everything must be prepared in a very precise order. The precision of quality sushi making is truly a sight to behold.
We are proud to be a leading supplier of catering sushi in Sydney, one of the most demanding markets in the developed world.
