Carpaccio

  • Grill ostrich fillet in pan or open fire. Seal fillets first before rubbing the meat with black pepper.
  • Braai until rare or medium rare.

Herb Sauce

  • Mix first three ingredients well and divide equally. Pour into two small bowls.
  • Add mustard and mayonnaise to one bowl oil/vinegar and mix with a small wire whisk. Do not use an electric blender – it can cause the sauce to curdle.
  • Pour this sauce on the basis and near the rim of a platter. Place the thinly sliced ostrich fillet (overlapping) on top of the sauce in the platter.
  • Whisk herbs and remaining oil/vinegar mix together and pour over meat.
  • Decorate with slivers of Parmesan.
