Eating shark carpaccio

Expecting an average italian pizza/pasta meal, I found an interesting surprise at the menu in a resturant in Covent Garden last night. They were serving shark carpaccio as a starter!

I was obviously well surprised, and as I am no stranger to sampling odd food just for the hell of it, I gave it a go.

Now it has to be said it probably sounds fancier than it really is. The meat was a bit stringy, but sliced in reasonably thin slices (carpaccio really should be very thin, this could have been thinner) and jazzed up with some olive oil, basil and lemon, it was definitely worth trying. My fish-savvy company compared the taste to herring, which I can neither dispute nor confirm as I'm not much of a fish-eater usually.

That wasn't Shark fin, was it Anders? If so, you need to know that the eating of shark fin is endangering shark stocks worldwide. Naughty boy!

Paul, it was shark meat, not the fin, I believe. Presumably the hunting for and eating of shark fin around the globe frees up a lot of shark meat (if that's a less desireable part of the fish?). What do I know...
