Kingfish is perfect for this kind of raw preparation because it's such a meaty fish. Squeeze the lemon juice over just as you serve it because the lemon will start cooking the proteins straight away. The pink peppercorns need to be very fresh. If you're unsure, toast them lightly in a pan before crushing them. Alternatively, use freshly ground black peppercorns.
