Hints and tips

  • Kingfish can be substituted with any oily white fish such as Toothfish, Cobia, Barramundi or Salmon.
  • Cooking time may vary from 4-7 minutes depending on the thickness of fillets.
  • Pickled mushroom will keep for up to 1 month in the Refrigerator.
  • Dried mushrooms can also be used for the pickled shiitake. Place 1 cup of the dried shittkae mushrooms in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to rehydrate for 30 minutes. Strain and remove stems, reserving one cup of soaking liquid. Continue with recipe once hydrated.
  • Vegetarian option – marinate firm tofu in the same method in place of the fish.
