:hello: I was wondering if it is better to eat sashimi over canned tuna?
By that I mean is there any advantage/disadvantage comparing the two i.e. higher count of omega 3's and/or better absorbsion by the body?
Here fresh sashimi and tinned tuna are about the same price.
Or would it in fact, be better to include both into my daily diet? :windup:

n.b. the sashimi I buy is salmon., but sometimes I like to eat Magaro (tuna) too.

Wow Sashimi is the same price as canned Tuna in Japan? Thats crazy. In hawaii Sashimi is way more expensive.....we usually make it with Ahi Tuna though.

Canned tuna in Taiwan was 2-3x the price of it in US, so i'm not surprised.

Sorry I don't know the answer to your question

A can of (Good) Tuna here is about 150 yen ...just under 3 dollars...whereas I can buy 2 slices of fresh sashimi for the same price.
Crazy huh.

*cough* well is it better than tinned tuna ? :) :windup:

omegas are heat sensitive, which is why flax oil should be stored in the refrigerator. fresh fish has more omegas than the same fish that has been cooked and canned.

ditto that, id go with the fresh raw sashimi, less protein denaturing. Probably more bioavailable...but im no scientist. I personally dont like too much raw fish, i hate the texture...though the taste is just fine.

Generally, salmon has much more omega 3 than tuna.

Man, good sashimi here can go for $6-7 a piece. I wish I could get it for the same as tuna.

This is something I was also wondering at one point, but seeing that it's so expensive to buy "sashimi" grade fish i figured that it wasn't really an option to eat it everyday. I think that sashimi is 10x better than eating it cooked. So anyways, I was at a sushi restaurant and the sushi chef said that all you have to do is go to Costco and buy fresh fish and stick it in the freezer overnight. The next day, thaw it in the fridge and you got your sashimi. Enjoy!

Some tips he gave me to make sure the fish is fresh, if buying a whole fish. 1) Look at the eyes, make sure they're clear. 2) Pull up on the gills and make sure they're red. and 3) Smell it, if it smells fishy, it must be old.

Usually they do more than just freeze it at a sushi restaurant, but until I get food poisoning or something (which i doubt will happen), this is good enough for me.
