[Anime Culture Monday] Anime Recipes: Carpaccio from Isekai Shokudou

This is yet another delicious installment of Anime Recipes from Honey’s Anime. Isekai Shokudou is wrapping up and we are starting to get sad! So much food and so little time! Without further ado, let us dive right on into this dish and episode! For this episode, we saw two harpies, at least that is what we think they are—you can never assume with Japan—are going to an island where they stumble across a cave with a note and money talking about Nekoya. Soon enough, the door appears and they go. Unable to eat anything other than raw fish, the master whips up a delicious carpaccio for them.

Carpaccio is not Japanese or even from Asia. It is actually from Italy. However, with a diet that consists of a lot of seafood, it makes total sense that the dish would be super popular here as well. Carpaccio can be made with either beef, veal, venison, salmon, or tuna in Italy. However Japan also makes it with many, many other kinds of seafood and fish as well. Though salmon and tuna are still the big two. For today, we will be exploring the tuna variation which is most likely what Iris and Arius ate. Let’s go!

Carpaccio from Isekai Shokudou

Carpaccio was made in the 1950s in Venice, Italy and tl;dr from there, it took off and exploded in popularity. In the west, other than Mediterranean countries, meat is the common variation, but rather than play the health game with meat, fish is a safer option. For those of you who are slightly weirded out by fish, then think of it as sushi without the rice, with different spices and boom! You are in business. This dish requires you to pay attention and be careful so that you do not make yourself ill by accident. Be careful but also enjoy!

What You Will Need:

1lb of Fresh tuna. Sliced thinly.

olive oil.
4 tablespoons

lemon juice.
4 tablespoons

pitted olives. Black or green work.
4 oz

basil leaves

a baguette or bagel chips.

Salt and pepper

artichoke heart or celery heart.

Optional Notes:

Cross Contamination is what you need to be careful of here. Be sure to be very mindful of what the fish touches and wash your hands multiple times. Options to add into the recipe are sliced avocado, palm hearts, and more. Green, crunchy veggies go well here. Just not bell peppers.

How to Cook It:

  1. 1

    Slice your tuna thinly.
  2. 2

    Line a plate with the tuna and then pour the lemon juice over all of it. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside for a few minutes to let is marinate.
  3. 3

    This next one is optional, but you can put olive oil, salt, and pepper on the bread and toast it quickly in an oven or toaster oven. It is really up to you.
  4. 4

    Regardless of step three, slice the olives, artichoke hearts, any other veggies you may use, and the basil leaves.
  5. 5

    Once about 10-15 minutes have passed for the fish, sprinkle the sliced veggies & herbs on top.
  6. 6

    Using a spoon or fork, place a slice of the fish onto your bread and then enjoy! It’s that best.

(Note: Raw fish and getting sick are no joke. Be careful. )
