Beef carpaccio with figs and rocket


You'll need

2 tbsp Dijon mustard 3 anchovy fillets, finely chopped ½ garlic clove, finely chopped 350 gm piece beef fillet, trimmed ¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley 1 tbsp each finely chopped oregano and thyme 8 figs, halved 1 cup (loosely packed) wild rocket To serve: extra-virgin olive oil, aged balsamic vinegar and basil leaves

Method

  • 01
  • Combine mustard, anchovies and garlic in a bowl, season to taste and brush evenly over beef.
  • 02
  • Combine herbs in a bowl, then scatter on a tray and roll beef in herbs, pressing to cover evenly. Wrap beef in plastic wrap, rolling ends to form a tight even cylinder, and place in freezer to chill and firm (30 minutes). Thinly slice with a very sharp knife, remove plastic wrap, arrange on a platter and scatter with figs and rocket. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar to taste, season to taste, scatter with basil and serve.
