Not For Everyone

These days, sushi and sashimi are everywhere and eating raw fish is widely accepted and enjoyed in most parts of the world. However, another Japanese delicacy that's lesser known in the Western world but still eaten regularly here is raw chicken. And yesterday, after almost two weeks back, I was finally able to find a place that had it. And not only did I get raw chicken meat, but they also served me up raw heart, raw liver and raw gizzards! I know what you're probably thinking, but when prepared and served properly with sesame oil, ginger and wasabi, raw chicken really is a culinary delight! Trust me, give it a shot if you get the chance!

I'm with you, Thighs.

Though who knows...I used to say the same about sushi!

I've had raw chicken in Japan. It was really good. Don't know if I trust US chicken though. Beef sashimi is good too. There was a sushi place I went to that served live shrimp in Aomori. Rip the head off and dig in.

For the food-venturous but wasabi uninclined, does it still work?

I have to admit, this scares the hell out of me. I'm sure most cases of salmonella are usually just due to the handling of chicken, but that seems risky. You would also have to be 100% sure about the handling of the chicken during the processing.

I guess most of my fears come from "not knowing", so I'll chock it up to ignorance on my part! : )

I'll eat practically anything- but I draw the line at raw chicken. And jellied eels.
