Method

  • 01

  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for sesame dressing, pound sugar, cumin, coriander and chilli in a mortar and pestle until finely ground, whisk in remaining ingredients and set aside.
  • 03
  • Preheat a char-grill over medium heat, remove kingfish from marinade, pat dry with absorbent paper and grill, turning once, until golden and cooked rare (1-2 minutes each side), thickly slice across the grain, set aside.
  • 04
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl, add dressing, toss and serve with kingfish.
Note Roasted sesame oil is available from select Asian grocers. If unavailable, substitute regular sesame oil.

“I would love to learn to make Rainer Konstanty’s kingfish tataki, which I enjoyed recently at Halo restaurant in Perth. Would you please ask him for the recipe?”
