Step 1: Thinly slice the Kingfish across the grain and divide into four to five equal portions, then lay each portion in a line (overlapping each piece) onto a piece of cling film. You are then able to stack each portion on top of each other, cover and place into the fridge until ready to serve.

Step 2: To make the quandong mixture, place the quandongs and verjuice into a mixing bowl, then place into a microwave for 40 seconds, this will warm the verjuice and start to soften the quandongs. Remove from the microwave and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

Step 3: Spoon out the quandongs from the Verjuice and finely chop, then return the quandongs back into the Verjuice. Set aside.

Step 4: Cut the finger limes down the middle lengthways, then using a small spoon scoop out the pulp, then add this to the quandong mixture along with the olive oil & vino cotto. Mix together well.

Step 5: Lay a serve of the kingfish onto a serving plate, spoon over some of the quandong mixture (dividing into 4 to 5 equal portions).

Step 6: Sprinkle each dish with the small lemon verbena leaves and dress the kingfish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil just prior to serving.
