Pickled Sardines with Furikake : Daniel Pepperell

We know you love 10 William Street as much as we do, so we asked Chef Daniel Pepperell for a recipe.

“The inspiration for this dish came to me on an early spring evening whilst I was with my fiancé. I was enjoying an ice cold chocolate milkshake in the late afternoon setting sun down on the rocks at Clovelly. Gazing out into the Pacific Ocean, I noticed a small school of shimmering silver fish racing on the waters surface. As my eyes followed this entrancing dance I noticed a fluro green and red seaweed over the rocks at the waters edge. The harmony between these two energies, playing off one another seemed so natural and beautiful. Sardine & furikake was born.”
