What sort of drink would the Japanese pair with sushi?

In Mediterranean gastronomic culture, fish is usually accompanied by white or sparkling wines, but if you travel to Japan, you’ll be surprised to know that over there they usually pair sushi with sake or beer. In this post we want to tell you about another pairing option for the star dish of Japan.

Super Dry Japanese beer pairs perfectly with Japanese food, whether it’s sushi or other typical delicacies such as ramen. Dry-flavoured beer is known as one of the Karakuchi 辛 口 drinks, a concept it also shares with sake. It refers to drinks that, unlike those leaving a sweet aftertaste in the mouth, are astringent and help cleanse the palate between mouthfuls.

When a beer is light and has a short finish that doesn’t persist in the mouth, in Japanese it’s said to have a lot of kire. Japanese cuisine is usually paired with drinks with a lot of kire, with a refreshing taste and a short finish, whose presence doesn’t interfere with the subtle flavours of their dishes.

Dry-flavoured Japanese beer is perfect to accompany dishes such as tartare, sashimi and sushi, as well as all kinds of fish and seafood.

Plus, its creamy foam layer helps to maintain the karakuchi, since it preserves carbonisation, making the beer stay fresh and dry, perfect to accompany a Gimar Saku.

At Gimar we have total control over the traceability of our products, with detailed information from the moment the fish is caught until the processed product leaves our facilities.

If the fish in the sea is perfect, let’s not waste time. This is the philosophy that prompts us to work with the aim of ensuring the best freshness that translates into exceptional texture and flavour.

At Gimar we don’t work with stock, we produce on order only those units that are going to be distributed immediately; this means our products are fresher and maintain their properties for longer, achieving a much higher organoleptic shelf life.

The salmon’s journey

We’re going to tell you the story of a salmon, the Gimar salmon, which travelled thousands of kilometres to satisfy the most demanding palates.

The hero of our tale was born on some cold islands in the North Atlantic, the world’s best waters. It grew up and was selected to carry out a hugely responsible task, representing the excellence of its kind, the best Salmo salar.

It began its journey to warmer lands, where expert, delicate hands were waiting to turn it into a jewel of gastronomy. Once in Petrel, the moment it had been waiting for arrived, the most careful processing it could ever have imagined. It encountered clouds of salt, smoke baths and the caresses of wise hands. Now it was ready to surprise and excite, it had become a Gimar product.

Gimar presents its latest format, a ready-made product that will become your favourite fish steak. It comes from the loin and belly cuts of selected specimens that only need a few minutes to finish cooking.

Fishteak fish steaks, with no skin or bones, have consumer appeal because of their clean presentation, their texture and their delicate flavour, and they’re so easy to use. You can find salmon and tuna Fishteak.

Below we list some of the benefits of consuming this kind of oily fish and how to prepare them:

Salmon:

 Salmon  has a high content of Omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamins A and D, minerals and selenium, making a key food for strengthening the immune system and preventing heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and other conditions. Plus, consuming salmon regularly helps strengthen bones, improves mental health and helps keep weight down.

The method of use is very simple: bring the product up to room temperature 15 minutes before cooking Next, remove from the packaging and cook on a very hot griddle or in a frying pan for 2 minutes on each side. Don’t add salt, as it comes already lightly seasoned with just the right amount of salt. You won’t need to add oil either, as the fish is cooked in its own fat.

Tuna:

Tuna is very rich in proteins with a high biological value and in Omega-3 fatty acids, making it ideal for reducing cholesterol. This means it’s a great way of fighting cardiovascular disease and also has a beneficial effect on mood as well as protecting the skin from the sun.

The method of use is very simple: bring the product up to room temperature 15 minutes before cooking.
