In this recipe, we are using traditional Japanese fish sashimi as toppings. Note, though, that you can choose whatever you like. It is super easy to make as all you have to do is to gather colorful ingredients available in your country, such as ham, fish, and vegetables, and just stuff them all together. This dish will definitely make your table spread even more beautiful. It would also be fun to do with your children. The only points you need to remember are to slice the ingredients thinly and to make your dish colorful.
