Fast and fresh summer recipes

Fish in a flash, speedy stir-fries, ripe and ready fruit – magic dishes in moments. Here's a preview of the recipes in our February 2016 issue.

Stir-fry recipes

A centrepiece of stir-fried lobster with garlic stems or Neil Perry’s stir-fried beef with Sichuan peppercorns and sweet bean sauce? Whichever you choose, our online collection of 22 wok-tossed recipes is bound to cause a stir.

Prego rolls

"This is a Mozambican specialty and one of the foods that changed my life in terms of African cuisine," says Duncan Welgemoed. "The best spot to get a prego roll in South Africa is the Radium Beerhall. It's run by my godfather, Manny, and is the oldest pub in Jo'burg. The meats are grilled out the back by Mozambican staff and are still done the same way today as they were 30 years ago." Start this recipe a day ahead to marinate the beef.

Lebanese-style snapper

"This dish is Lebanese-peasant done fancy with all the peasant-style flavours you'll find in Lebanese cooking, but with a beautiful piece of fish added," says Bacash. "The trick to not overcooking fish is to be aware that it cooks from the outside inwards and the centre should only cook until it's warm, not hot. If it gets hot in the middle, it will become overcooked from the residual heat. It takes a little practise getting to know this - be conscious of the inside of the fish and not the outside. Until you get it right, you can always get a little paring knife and peek inside the flesh when you think it's ready; it won't damage it too much."

Green salad with vinaigrette

"Our seven-year-old, Arwen, has been making this vinaigrette since she was five - she tastes it as she goes," says Levy Redzepi. "It's fresh and acidic and as good as the leaves. Frillice lettuce is crunchy but it's thin so it's like a perfect mix of cos and iceberg."

Homemade white bread

"Not multigrain, not gluten-free, nor rye or whole wheat - classic white bread is the only acceptable canvas for your delicious passion project, the brisket," says Curtis Stone. "Texas barbecue sides are supposed to be minimalist, but minimalist done right. Baking soft, fluffy bread from scratch is doing it just right (and then some). Plus, stuffing brisket into a slice of bread means you can eat with your hands, the way it ought to be." Makes 2 loaves.

Country terrine of pork, chicken and pistachios


You'll need

600 gm coarsely minced pork shoulder 200 gm chicken tenderloins (see note) 140 gm coarsely minced pork back fat 60 gm pistachios ¾ small onion, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped ¼ cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped 1 egg 75 ml white wine 65 ml veal glace (see note) 1 tbsp Cognac 1 tbsp thyme leaves, finely chopped 1 large piece of pork caul fat, washed and soaked in salted water for 3 hours (see note) To serve: fruit chutney, cornichons and crusty bread

Method

  • 01
  • Combine all ingredients except caul, chutney, cornichons and bread in a large bowl, working well with a large wooden spoon (5 minutes). Season to taste with 1 tbsp sea salt and freshly ground white pepper.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Line a 30cm-rectangular terrine mould or loaf tin with caul, allowing it to overhang the sides, and fill with pork mixture. Fold the caul over and tuck it along the sides so the top of the terrine has no joins and is completely sealed. Cover mould. Place in a roasting pan, fill with enough hot water to come halfway up sides of mould, transfer to oven and cook for 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 140C and cook until a meat thermometer inserted into the centre reads 72C (1-1½ hours). Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate overnight.
  • 03
  • Remove terrine from mould (you may need to warm the mould by dipping it into a warm water bath first). Clean jelly and residual fat from the outside with absorbent paper, thinly slice and serve with chutney, cornichons and crusty bread.
Note Must Winebar uses Mount Barker chicken. Veal glace is available from select butchers and delicatessens. Pork caul fat is available from select butchers, you may need to order ahead.

Drink Suggestion

A light pinot noir will complement the delicacy of the terrine without overpowering, while the savoury edge of Burgundy gives a certain rusticity that works well with lighter meat terrines.
