elb's hovel of thoughts

This has to be one of the best stuff ever:

Fresh salmon. Yes, its raw, in case you're wondering. Dip it into Japanese soy sauce (normal soy sauce is just too salty) and wasabi (that green paste thingy; be liberal with it at your own risk :p) and pick it up with chopsticks.

Close your eyes and relish as it enters your mouth, the saltiness of the soy sauce immediately apparent, followed by the melt-in-you-mouth jellyish texture of the salmon, and thereafter by the burn-inducing wasabi (its horseradish, those of you who enjoy a good Sunday roast should know how that tastes like) that you can even feel in your nostrils. Savour every bite. Classic. Just don't put too much wasabi, or you'll regret it.

P.S. I apologize for the lack of garnishing. I couldn't find any :P
