Chicken sashimi is a thing, and netizens are not having it
With the ongoing bird flu fiasco behind us, we’re on the road to recovery to appreciating the most consumed meat in the world again, but would you appreciate it in its rawest form, because netizens sure aren’t.
The dish comes from Japan, home of a host of unique food preparations, often served in establishment in Osake, Kyoto and Tokyo.
The chicken tartare is usually served as slivers of chicken cooked for no more than ten seconds before it’s served. Japan’s Ministry of Health, labor and Welfare warned of possible food poisoning from consuming raw chicken—requesting chicken meat reaching a 75-degree internal temperature before service.
There aren’t many establishments that sell this in the US, but when Food and Wine released an article on the odd Japanese import, well the internet went nuts.

Chicken sashimi is not only susceptible to causing salmonella, but malpractice in raising the birds can cause needs to be observed, making sure that, like normal sashimi, it’s fresh and clean.
