Gambero Rosso Carpaccio

This simple and elegant dish comes together in just a few easy steps, says Joe Gurrera, owner and original fishmonger at Citarella Gourmet of this red prawn dish from his book Joe Knows Fish. Set in a bed of microgreens it packs a health punch with pre-vitamin A and antioxidants, but health benefits aside, it just looks so pretty on the plate.
