Cod Carpaccio with melon, Asparagus and mayonnaise

Cod Carpaccio with melon, asparagus and mayonnaise parsley. A fresh recipe without cooking, rich in vitamins. Fish and fruit are two ingredients which in my opinion is beautifully matched thanks to their versatility. Here I present a dish of cod: I love it and its use in raw does not involve issues that may involve the use of other raw fish because of the possible presence of Anisakis.

I cut the cod carpaccio (and thus very thin slices) and I marinated for 30 minutes, only for flavor, with ginger, fresh onion and lime juice. I combined with thin sliced ​​raw asparagus, melon, oil and Red shiso sprouts and parsley mayonnaise, pleasantly spicy. The raw asparagus are delicious and maintain intact all their nutritional properties. Obviously, the extra virgin olive oil that you will use to prepare mayonnaise must be of high quality: a medium fruit would be perfect.

The salt cod carpaccio with melon, asparagus and mayonnaise is a light appetizer. Perfect for the first warm, and for those who love raw fish and whimsical combinations. I also prepared a parsley oil, But if you prefer a simpler life used a normal, excellent extra virgin olive oil. Obviously, I suggest you take a look at all my RECIPES WITH COD’ and the sword fish.

Hi Morena! I have decided to put the melon, diced very small, to balance the acidity of the marinade and mayonnaise fatness. I was dubious, too, but I liked it and liked it even to my three Guinea Pigs. However if you do not like the contrasts with the sweet salty fruit less sweet and more in an acid, as a peach Walnut, could be a viable alternative! Happy Monday! ADA
