Konnyaku Sashimi

Konnyaku Sashimi

If you miss eating seafood sashimi, here is a fabulous substitute for you!

Konnyaku mimic the flavour of raw fish that is why konnyaku is quite often used in Vega fish products.
Konnyaku has a little bit rubbery texture like raw squid – the key is to slice very thinly.

Konnyaku aka konjac is amazing for overall health since it is highly alkalising food and great for many things – weight loss, detox, gut health and more.



serves 2


1 sheet white konnyaku (250g/9oz) sheet 

Soy sauce




  1. To achieve very thin and diagonal slices of konnyaku sashimi, put the konnyaku horizontally on the cutting board in front of you, position your knife at a nearly horizontal angle across the grain. Slice from left to right until you’ve sliced the entire sheet.
  2. Once its sliced, boil with water for 5 minutes to remove the harsh taste or any unpleasant smell of the konnyaku; or you can mix with 2 teaspoons of rice vinegar, gently massage and then rinse with water. 


TIP: Please use white konnyaku only if you have never had konnyaku before. Grey colour konnyaku has stronger  ” fishy” smell
