Cooking with Sake: Seafood and Grapefruit Carpaccio

The sweet and sour flavor of chunky grapefruit adds a delicious accent to this dish!

By adding some chewy grapefruits into a refreshing seafood carpaccio, you can easily make a new and unique fresh salad. The vitamin C from the grapefruits will also do wonders for your skin such as preventing wrinkles and protect you from damage from the sun.

In addition, when you mix peeled shrimp in sake first, you can neutralize any unwanted odors from the shrimp. Then, by adding salad dressing, the flavor will taste smoother and less sour.

The salad is also very visually pleasing, so it can be a good dish to prepare for parties.
