FLUKE CARPACCIO OVER ASIAN GREENS
2/24/2017 5:53:15 AM - We live in such a great area where the local farms supply us with seasonal vegetables and fruits, and being close to the water also allows us to get fresh catches of the day. Imagine my delight in discovering local fluke, or "hirame" in Japanese, a delicacy in sushi restaurants in Japan served either as sushi or preferably by gourmants as sashimi.

I combined the sashimi idea with the Italian carpaccio as well as Mexican seviche and came up with this salad that has won praise from friends (and husband, as noted in his rating below).

Serves 4

3-4 handfuls of washed Asian mix mesculun (or you can use regular mesculun)
olive oil (about 5 Tablespoons)
1/2 teaspoon champagne vinegar
salt and pepper
One side of medium sized fluke, skinned and filleted (have your seafood shop do this for you)
1 teaspoon whole pink peppercorn
1/2 teaspoongrated yuzu skin (or you can use lemon or lime skin)
juice from half a lime
One avocado, halved and sliced
handful of fresh cilantro, chopped roughly

Use a large shallow platter (I like to use a glass one that's about 18") and put the mesculun inside. Dress with olive oil and vinegar (around 2-3 Tablespoons to 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar), season with salt & pepper.

Cut fluke fillet length-wise in half along the center "seam." Begin slicing one half of the fillet as thinly as possible like sushi pieces, then the other fillet half, As you slice a piece, put them from the outer edge of the platter on top of the mesculun, each slice next to each other but overlapping slightly, going in a circle, creating a flower design, repeating until all the fluke is sliced and layered on top of the greens. Drizzle with olive oil (about 2 tablespoons), lime juice, salt and pepper, and grated yuzu (or lemon or lime) skin, and crush pink peppercorns with your fingers on top. Decorate avocado slices around the outer edges of the salad and put cilantro also towards the outer edges in 2-3 clumps.
