Ever the innovator, Chef Shiro Kashiba has found a new favorite fish. He’s been serving nishin (Pacific herring) sushi lately at his restaurant in Pike Place Market. Kashiba wasn’t much of a fan of the traditional pickled herring, so he freed the fish from the pickling process and found out it is quite delicious as a sushi topping. For more on Chef Shiro Kashiba, including the story of how he brought nigiri sushi to Seattle in the 60s, visit Seattle’s Sushi Godfather.
