Yellowtail Crudo with Orange, Fennel & Red Hot Chili Peppers

Paint me like one of your french girls! 🎨 Yellowtail crudo with orange, fennel & red hot chili peppers. Recipe below👇⁠

So what’s the difference between sashimi and crudo? Let’s get cultured, fam. Sashimi is a Japanese preparation that is made with expertly cut raw fish typically served with a side of soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger while crudo is an Italian preparation of raw fish drizzle with olive oil and typically cured with citrus.⁠

🐟 Since the fish will be consumed raw it is important to purchase sushi or sashimi-grade fish, which is typically flash frozen soon after it’s caught to maintain it’s fresh quality. I am using Yellowtail for this recipe, a mild-flavored fish with a firm texture and buttery taste when served raw.⁠


1 fillet of sushi-grade Yellowtail, skinless and boneless ⁠

1 tbs olive oil⁠

1 tbs freshly squeezed orange juice⁠

1 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice⁠

1 tsp finely chopped shallot⁠

1 tsp thinly sliced green onion, diagonal ⁠

1 tbs thinly sliced cucumber, cut into quarters⁠

1 tbs thinly sliced fennel⁠

1 tsp thinly sliced orange, cut into triangles⁠

1 tsp thinly sliced red hot chili pepper (optional)⁠

Coarse kosher or sea salt ⁠


In a bowl mix together the shallots, cucumber, fennel, orange, green onion, red hot chili pepper, olive oil, and citrus juices and set aside.⁠

Thinly slice the Yellowtail and add to the bowl with sauce, toss and arrange the fish on a plate, folded in half. Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the fish. Top with salt and you can garnish with fennel leaves. Serve immediately. ⁠🥰⁠
