Automata's Kingfish with crème fraîche, yuzukosho, shiso and finger lime


"I love to serve a raw fish dish at a family-style lunch," says Clayton Wells. "It's nice and fresh so you can make it as light or as rich as you like, depending on what you use to garnish it. You could even go heavy with the seaweed to make it richer in winter, and in spring and summer use fruits and herbs to keep it fresh. It's the sort of dish you can have every day of the year and just change your garnishes accordingly."

You'll need

100 gm crème fraîche 6 gm yuzukosho paste (see note) 600 gm sashimi-grade Hiramasa kingfish fillet, sliced 5mm thick 100 gm seedless black grapes, thinly sliced Baby shiso, to serve 3 finger limes, halved crossways   Wakame dressing 25 gm dried wakame 50 ml grapeseed oil 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar 1 tbsp mirin 3½ tsp white soy sauce or light soy sauce

Method

  • 01
  • For wakame dressing, blend wakame and oil in a blender until warm (3-5 minutes), then strain through a fine sieve. Combine vinegar, mirin and soy sauce in a bowl and whisk in wakame oil.
  • 02
  • Mix crème fraîche and yuzukosho paste in a bowl, then smear a little on each serving plate or a platter. Arrange kingfish on top, season to taste with sea salt flakes and top with grape slices and shiso. Squeeze the finger lime on top, drizzle with a little wakame dressing and serve.
