What Is The Ike Jime Technique?
Ikejime is the process of humanely killing a fish in the quickest amount of time while preserving the highest quality of the meat.
- This is done by using a spike to dispatch the fish with the least amount of pain.
- The fish is bled by cutting the gills to remove any harsh metallic taste from the flesh.
- A wire is then inserted to stop the firing of nerve impulses to prevent the meat from spoiling quickly.
- The fish is thrown into an ice slurry to bring the temperature down of the meat.
