Kingfish and Plum Crudo

Fish crudo is a raw fish dish, similar to sashimi, where thinly sliced pieces of fresh fish are typically dressed with flavorful oils, citrus juices, herbs, and/or spices to enhance its natural flavors. This recipe is a twist on one by the Sydney Fish Market and made enough for a good single serving – adjust the recipe to suit the quantity you’d like to make
