King Fish Crudo
Living here in the SF Bay Area, I'm blessed to have access to amazingly fresh seafood of the highest quality. One of my favorite vendors is Ana's Seafood. I pick up from her at the Larkspur farmers market in Marin county on Saturday mornings. My favorite score from her is the kingfish! The best raw eating fish in the world if you ask me! Superb texture and awesome flavor. With fish of this quality and caliber, why cook it? I decided to eat it raw to enjoy all that this amazing cut had to offer.
The recipe for this crudo is simple, combine a bunch of tasty ingredients in a bowl, whisk them together and pour them over thinly sliced fish. It looks awesome, is super easy and the results are mind blowing. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!
1 King Fish Filet
1 orange, skinned and cut into small segments
1 lime, skinned and cut into small segments
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
6 tablespoons high quality olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flaks
1 small shallot, finely minced
1 tablespoon dill, minced
Sea salt to taste
Combine oil, fruit juices, shallot, dill, pepper, and salt in a bowl. Whisk together until incorporated and then rest so flavors can come together.
Slice fish 1/4 inch thin, using a very sharp knife (cutting the fish while extremely cold and fresh out of the refrigerator or off the ice will make it easier)
Place fish on plate in fan like pattern or design of your choice. Top with sauce. Garnish with lime and orange segments and extra dill if you'd like.
