AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

  • 6 (about 600gm) fillets of King George whiting, cut into 5cm lengths
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, thinly sliced widthways
  • To serve: baby shiso and mizuna leaves (see note)
  •  
  • Roasted sesame dressing
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 2 tbsp each of mirin and rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
01   For roasted sesame dressing, heat a frying pan over medium heat and dry roast sesame seeds for 1-2 minutes or until starting to colour and pop. Add grapeseed oil, cook for another minute, remove from heat, add remaining ingredients and season to taste with sea salt. Cool completely.
02   Combine fish and dressing in a bowl. Arrange cucumber on plates, top with fish, scatter over shiso and mizuna leaves and serve immediately drizzled with excess dressing.

Note Baby shiso and mizuna are available from select greengrocers. If unavailable, substitute with other baby leaves such as coriander and lamb's lettuce (mâche).
