Enjoy sea bream in a whole new way. Many think of sea bream as a very meaty fish, but when enjoyed as sashimi it can be surprisingly delicate. Matched with a refreshingly tart plum sauce, this recipe is quick to prepare and a fantastic dish for spring dinner parties or special meals.


• 4 pickled plums
• 4-5 chives
• ponzu citrus juice
• 240ml cooking sake
• slices of sea bream sashimi

How To Prepare

  1. Add the cooking sake and pitted pickled plums to a pan. Bring to the boil over a high heat, when it reaches a simmer turn down low and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid and leave to one side.

  2. Cut the chives into even 4-5cm lengths.

  3. Arrange the sea bream and chives on a plate, drizzling the sea bream with a little bit of the ponzu citrus juice. Serve the plum sauce on the side. 

  4. To eat, wrap slices of sashimi around 1-2 chive stalks to make bite-size 'wraps'. Dip into the plum sauce and enjoy.
