…Ikizukuri is fresh?

Ikizukuri is Japanese for “prepared alive”, and refers to the preparation of sashimi from a still living animal. The sashimi chefs who prepare ikizukuri are skilled enough to fillet and gut the fish without killing it, and then the ikizukuri is served on a plate with the heart still beating. Though controversial, it’s said that the flavor and freshness can’t be beat (I guess you can’t really get more fresh than a fish that’s still alive).
