You'll need

Method

  • 01
  • Wrap kingfish in kombu then plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4 hours to lightly cure.
  • 02

Additional Notes

Large thin sheets of kombu are hard to find; use smaller squares if they’re unavailable. Kombu and bonito flakes are available from Japanese grocers and Asian supermarkets. Bottarga, or sea mullet roe, is available from select fishmongers. At Belon Henry uses shima aji (horse mackerel), which isn't readily available in Australia; we've used kingfish here. He also makes a jelly from fish bones.
