With just a couple of avocados and some pantry staples, you can approximate the flavors and textures of creamy, delicate slices of sashimi anytime, even when you have no fresh fish on hand. With a salty-sweet sauce and a dash of spicy shichimi togarashi, this paleo and vegan sashimi is delicious enough for eaters of all stripes.
