At Four Star Seafood, we're not just purveyors of the finest seafood; we're culinary enthusiasts, constantly exploring the diversity of flavors and textures that the ocean's bounty offers. Today's creation is a testament to that exploration: a Cubed Salmon and Tuna Sashimi Donburi, adorned with avocado and ikura. This dish is a celebration of form and flavor, presenting our sashimi-grade seafood in a novel and inviting way.
Cubed Salmon and Tuna Sashimi Donburi with Avocado and Ikura
The Foundation: Sushi Rice Done Right
Every great donburi begins with perfectly cooked sushi rice. It's the anchor that holds together the vibrant layers of taste and texture.
- 1 cup sushi rice
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Prepare your rice to be sticky yet fluffy, seasoned with a delicate balance of vinegar, sugar, and salt.
Building Flavors: Sashimi Cubes, Creamy Avocado, and Pops of Ikura
Rather than the traditional slices, we're taking our sashimi-grade salmon and tuna and cutting them into bite-sized cubes for a satisfying texture and ease of eating.
- 4 ounces sashimi-grade salmon, cubed
- 4 ounces sashimi-grade tuna, cubed
- 1/2 ripe avocado, cubed
- 2 tablespoons ikura (salmon roe)
The cubed fish provides a more substantial bite, allowing the natural sweetness and clean taste of the salmon and tuna to shine alongside the creamy avocado and the salty snap of ikura.
Finishing Touches: Garnish and Serve
A scattering of thinly sliced green onions adds a hint of sharpness to the dish, while traditional accompaniments of soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger allow diners to tailor each bite to their liking.
- 1 green onion, finely sliced
- Soy sauce, for serving
- Wasabi, for serving
- Pickled ginger, for serving
The Art of Assembly
With each component prepared, compose your donburi with intention and care. The cubed sashimi should be nestled comfortably against the sushi rice, creating a mosaic of colors with the avocado and ikura.
This Cubed Salmon and Tuna Sashimi Donburi invites you to savor the robust flavors and textures of our premium seafood. It's an experience that's as much about the preparation and presentation as it is about the eating.
