Seared Kingfish

The trick to this recipe is keeping the fish cold after cooking it. The fish should go straight from the heat either onto ice or into the fridge/freezer – this stops the fish from cooking and leaves you with the most beautiful texture.


  • Kingfish Fillets, rectangular
  • Cajun Seasoning
  • Wasabi
  • Soy Sauce
  1. Lightly cover Kingfish fillets with Cajun seasoning
  2. Place fillets into fridge or freezer to cool.
  3. Once cool, on a medium heat pan, sear kingfish for 30 seconds on each of the 4 sides.
  4. Take off heat and place immediately back into fridge/freezer to cool.
  5. Mix a tsp of wasabi with a couple of drops of soy sauce to create a paste, then add soy sauce to taste.
  6. Once cooled, remove kingfish from the fridge and cut into thin pieces.
