Red Mullet Sashimi

This is a great starter/appetizer that is really fresh and zingy. You need really good quality fish, so make sure it looks and smells fresh[. The pomegranate seeds are really healthy and nutritious with lots of vitamin C, and they explode in your mouth!]

Ingredients
  • 2 red mullet fillets, scaled and pinboned
  • Sea salt
  • 1 lime, zested, and juiced
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1 thumb-sized knob fresh ginger
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Small basil leaves
Directions
  • Slice the fish thinly, but not wafer thin, and put into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and squeeze in the lime juice (tip: if you roll and press the lime, you get more juice). The acid of the lime cooks the fish, so you will see it change colour.

  • Remove the seeds from the pomegranate by bashing the back of each 1/2.

  • Lay the fish on a plate, and from a height sprinkle on the lime zest and scatter over the pomegranate seeds. Use a sharp grater, such as a microplane, and grate the ginger over the top. To finish, drizzle over the oil and scatter on some small basil leaves.
