  • 1/4 lb sea beans (see cooks' note, below)
  • 1/4 lb radishes (about 5), cut into matchsticks
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 (1/2-lb) piece highest-quality fluke fillet
  • Good-quality extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
  • Sea salt for sprinkling
  • Toss together sea beans, radishes, lime juice, and salt to taste.
  • Holding a very sharp knife at a 45-degree angle, cut fluke into thin slices, transferring to 4 plates as cut (about 4 slices per plate) and arranging in a fan pattern.
  • Top fish with a small mound of sea-bean salad (you will have some salad left over), then drizzle with oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve immediately.
Cooks' note: Sea beans are available at specialty produce markets.
