I heard deep freezing chicken does nothing prior to being served as sashimi. Never had them myself, I'm not willing to take the risk.

I'll qualify that my saying that I have eaten raw conch, just 10 minutes removed from it's shell. It was "cooked" by the acid in lime juice. That was a real delicacy, but conch has some texture, some "chew" to it even raw. Like many shellfish, it turns to inedible rubber when overcooked.
So what do you think happens to the dead parasites when you cook the fish?

Chicken sashimi
Because the problem with chicken sashimi is bacteria, which can survive freezing.

Of course, one needs to be careful of bacteria with raw fish as well.

They are cooked... along with the fish. No problem. Same with the ground up bugs in flour. Doesn't bother me.

If you ever do go for sushi, you might enjoy several of the clam nigiri. Octopus, which is cooked, has a nice chewiness and great flavor, and the shrimp is cooked, too. Eel, which is broiled is another option for those who canít abide raw fish.

Sushi isnít about raw fish, itís about the rice!

...
you can add to the list - sliced thinly for delicacy of eating in one bite -

a honking big chunk of rice and fish would likely make you gag!

add - visual effect

You are not alone. I too want my fish cooked. Never had sushi and never intend to.

When I first met my wife she ate all kinds of raw fish whenever we went out for sushi. Now she eats sushi but can't have any raw fish in them. I think she was just trying to impress me back then. Actually, saves me money now... She can order her lousy 8 dollar California roll while I order the real thing...

Most parasites occur in fresh water fish. Thats why you should never use fresh water fish for sushi, unless it is cooked.
