This crudo of fresh island fish would work well served in crisp lettuce leaf wraps or with crispy wonton chips and a dry Spanish Albarino wine to accompany.

* 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

* 1/2 cup pickled cocktail onions, chopped

* 1/2 cup chopped Spanish or Greek black olives

* 2 tablespoons lightly chopped fresh oregano
