Carpaccio is a dish of raw meat or fish (such as beef,
veal, venison, salmon or tuna) generally thinly sliced or pounded thin and
served as an appetizer.
The term is now used to refer to the preparation of meat or fish served raw and
sliced thinly—in restaurants it is not uncommon to see fruits such as "Carpaccio
of pineapple" as a dessert.
