Twelve-hour Indian-spiced lamb shoulder with saffron pilaf

As the name indicates, this dish requires planning ahead. That said, the long cooking time is offset by simple preparation, with melt-in-the-mouth textures and deep flavours the pay-offs. Start this recipe two days ahead to marinate and roast the lamb.

Crisp-skinned snapper with chestnut mushrooms


You'll need

30 gm butter, coarsely chopped 1 clove of garlic, crushed 600 gm chestnut mushrooms 2 (about 750gm each) snapper fillets, skin on 50 gm (1/3 cup) plain flour 200 ml clarified butter (see note) 1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method

  • 01
  • Heat butter in a frying pan over low heat, add garlic, then mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • 02
  • Using a sharp knife, remove tail portion from snapper and discard, then cut each fillet into 3 pieces. Dust the skin-side of the snapper lightly with flour and place a piece of baking paper over the flesh side. Melt clarified butter in a heavy-based frying pan over high heat until a heat haze appears. Add fish, skin-side down, place another pan on top to weigh down fish and cook for 2 minutes or until skin is crisp. Remove pan and paper, turn fish and cook for 2 minutes or until just cooked.
  • 03
  • To serve, return mushrooms to the heat and warm through, scatter with chopped parsley and divide among plates. Top with snapper, scatter with sea salt and serve immediately.
Note For clarified butter, melt cold cubed butter, pour into a jug, stand, skim surface, then pour off clear butter and reserve, discarding the milk fat – 250gm of butter will make about 200gm of clarified butter.
