Tips/Tricks
  • You can buy shop bought crispy shallots from any Asian store but I added in a link to my crispy shallot recipe
  • Make sure your fish is as cold as you can get it – this will help to slice it cleanly if your knife isn’t razor sharp. Even pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes
  • Store the fish & dressing in the fridge until ready to use so that it is cold when serving
  • If you can’t get kingfish you can substitute snapper, tuna, Hamachi, bass will work instead – speak to your local fishmonger
  • Buy fresh – fresh is best when it comes to serving crudo
  • If you can’t get red shisho then add a little extra coriander. I like the minty licorice flavour it adds to the dish
