Cod carpaccio, or maybe you could simply call it marinated cod or perhaps cod ceviché? No matter what you call it you need to test this recipe, it’s simple, delicious and anyone can make it. It is very basic and I promise this is worth trying out. All you do is slice fresh fish, in this case, a cod loin. Marinate it with salt and lemon juice. Top it with chopped parsley, red onion, and capers. Add a bit of olive oil and some black pepper. Serve. That is literally all you need to do and the flavor is amazing. It’s one of those dishes that become more than its ingredients.
When doing this cod carpaccio the most important thing is that you get very fresh fish, it’s actually more important than if you get cod or not. Any good tasting firm white fish will be ok so freshness first. I use a cod loin for this recipe.
If you like this recipe and want to try out some other types of carpaccio I have a few other recipes worth taking a look at. How about a classic beef carpaccio or maybe a beef carpaccio with an Asian twist. If you want to try another one based on fish I have this great tasting tuna carpaccio. Vegetarian? No problem, this beet carpaccio will do the trick, enjoy!
