This stunning recipe turns the concept of cheese and crackers on its head. Cheese is replaced with anchovies and olive oil lends itself to a crispy flatbread. It's a recipe from Turkish chef Mehmet Gurs.

    While the scallops look delicious, they are clearly not a Carpaccio. The original raw meat dish was named after the Venetian painter and inspired by the particular red palette of his paintings. In this case, the dish is neither raw, beaten (or sliced) thinly, nor red.
