For those of you who aren’t big into eating raw fish, this food trend might seriously send you over the edge. More and more, we’re starting to see people ordering chicken sashimi, and it’s hard for even us hardcore sushi lovers to wrap our heads around.
Yesterday, Marc Murphy, who you may recognize as a judge on Food Network’s Chopped, posted a photo to Twitter of this controversial dish, and he insisted that it was delicious. The post prompted many of his followers to question how in the world this could be a real dish or if it was safe to consume, which is understandable given all we’ve ever heard about salmonella and raw meat.

So, now that you know how the dish is prepared and have decided you’re down to try it out, where can you go to get it? Well, as you can imagine, chicken sashimi is still pretty rare — no pun intended, I swear — in the United States. FWx reports that it’s only offered on a few menus here, the most recognized of which is that of Ippuku in Berkeley, CA. The raw dish is much more common in Japan, so maybe we should plan a trip? It would sure be an adventure for our taste buds.
