1/2 c Gingerroot, fresh, chopped

1/2 c Mustard sauce or: 1/4 c

- small pieces

In this popular dish, the Japanese enjoy eating their fish completely raw,
cut in slivers about 1/4 inch thick, and dipped into a mixture of fresh
chopped gingerroot, grated horseradish and mustard. We add dishes of very
fresh greens, turning the Sashimi into a salad.

If your fish is very, very fresh, your dishes colorful and attractively
arranged, and if you accompany your first bite of raw fish with a generous
mouthful of crisp greens, you will probably be able to overcome your
prejudices and discover what the Japanese have known for centuries: fish
doesn't have to be cooked to taste good.

INSTRUCTIONS: Set out the slivered fish, 3 dishes of seasonings and salad
greens and let everyone mix his own sauce, tasting and testing as he does,
and help himself to greens.
