“I love sashimi; it holds pride of place in my restaurant. I always find the freshest fish I can. Striped trumpeter comes from the pristine waters of Tasmania. If you can’t find any, substitute snapper. This dish is a perfect blend of earthy mushroom, fresh trumpeter and zingy dressing.” - Hamish Ingham, Bar H, Sydney
