Carpaccio Recipe
and Tagliata di Manzo

A carpaccio recipe is usually thinly sliced raw beef, parmesan cheese, arugula, and a dressing of good quality olive oil with lemon juice.

And a Tagliata di Manzo is basically a beef carpaccio that is slightly warmed.

Tagliata di Manzo is a good alternative if eating raw meat is not something your comfortable doing.

There are many techniques and flavors you can experiment with to make a beef carpaccio.  And you can also make a fish carpaccio using many different types of raw fish.

How to Prepare Beef Carpaccio

Make sure to use the finest quality beef you can get your hands on when making beef carpaccio.

I would use a grass fed beef or even bison over any type of grain fed or factory farmed meats.

Check your favorite local grocery store or health food store for these types of meats and if you need to - order grass fed meats online.

Classic Beef Carpaccio

Carpaccio Ingredients:

  • Finely Sliced Raw Beef Tenderloin
  • Shaved Parmesan Cheese
  • Organic Arugula
  • Organic Chopped Parsley
  • Organic Capers

This preparation offers a more complicated sauce.

Mayonnaise Sauce:

  • 1 Organic Raw Egg Yolk
  • Dried Mustard Powder
  • Sea Salt & White Pepper
  • Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • White Wine Vinegar
  • Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Grass Fed Whole Milk
  • Worcestershire Sauce

Freezing meat makes it a bit easier to slice meat very thin and freezing meat for a certain period of time can help to eliminate the threat of certain parasites - if this is a concern for you.

Tagliata di Manzo

Tagliata di Manzo is a warmed carpaccio recipe.  And you can either warm the whole dish in the oven or use cooked pieces of meat to make Tagliata di Manzo.

Grill a steak to rare or medium rare and then just thinly slice to make a warmed carpaccio.

You can use New York steak, Beef Tenderloin, or even Roast Beef - whatever tender cut of meat you prefer.

How to Make Fish Carpaccio

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 lb. Sea Bream (deboned & thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 Organic Green Apple (chopped)
  • 3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 4.5 oz. Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • Grated Organic Ginger
  • Organic Parsley for Garnish

Instructions:

Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, grated ginger, and seasoning together to make the vinaigrette.

Plate the sliced white fish and spoon on some vinaigrette.  Add the chopped apples and top with parsley. 

If you can't find Sea Bream in your area, use Sea Bass instead or try another type of white fish.  Halibut would be another great white fish choice for your raw fish carpaccio recipes.

How to Make Tuna Carpaccio

Ingredients:

  • About 2 oz. of Wild Caught Tuna (per serving)
  • Thai Basil & Olive Oil Puree
  • Sea Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Instructions:

Place tuna in plastic wrap.  Then pound tuna until thin using a meat pounder.

Plate the flattened tuna, season to taste, and drizzle on the Thai basil puree - yum!

I like the idea of one big piece of flattened raw fish.  It's a great way to present a tuna carpaccio recipe.

Instead of using Yellowfin tuna, you could try a fish like wild caught salmon - which may be an easier fish to find in your area.

You could also serve a warmed fish carpaccio by heating some flavored oil and then pouring it on your thinly sliced raw fish to warm it up - also yummy!
