Sashimi

Today I went to a Japanese restaurant I hadn't been to before and tried sashimi. The lunch menu had a "sushi and sashimi" plate. Sashimi is basically raw fish steaks. Not bad, but I think I like raw fish better when it's wrapped in vinegared rice.

Next to the sashimi was a pile of some kind of shredded or shaved white vegetable. Anybody know what that was? It didn't have any kind of taste strong enough for me to identify it.
