Method

  • 01

  • 02
  • Using a sashimi knife or sharp knife, place a fish fillet, skin-side down, on work surface and thinly slice on a 45-degree angle to almost transparent thickness, separating each slice of flesh from the skin. Transfer slices to a large plate and repeat with remaining fillets. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until required.

Note Suzuki mulloway, also called jewfish and Suzuki seabass, is a farmed fish from South Australia available from specialist seafood suppliers. If unavailable substitute with cod or other white-fleshed fish. Wild olives are available from select delicatessens. Substitute with small Ligurian olives.
