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.

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."

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.

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.

Rare poached ocean trout with esqueixada, ox heart tomatoes, kipfler potatoes and green herb mayonnaise


You'll need

4 (about 180gm each) ocean trout fillets, skin on and pin boned 4 small ox heart (beefsteak) or other firm-fleshed tomatoes, cut into 5mm-thick slices 4 kipfler potatoes, cooked, peeled and thinly sliced 80 gm salt cod, excess salt removed, thinly shaved with a sharp knife 2 spring onions, thinly sliced diagonally   Green herb mayonnaise 1 cup (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley leaves ½ cup (loosely packed) basil leaves 200 ml olive oil 2 egg yolks 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 tsp white wine vinegar   Court bouillon ½ carrot, coarsely chopped 1 stalk celery, coarsely chopped ½ onion, coarsely chopped 1 sprig each of flat-leaf parsley and thyme 1 fresh bay leaf 1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped 4 black peppercorns ½ lemon, juice only 125 ml (½ cup) dry white wine

Method

  • 01
  • For green herb mayonnaise, process herbs and olive oil in a food processor and stand for 20 minutes, then strain through a fine sieve, discarding solids. Whisk yolks, mustard and vinegar in a bowl to combine, then gradually whisk in herb oil in a thin stream until emulsified and thick. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Thin with a little hot water until it reaches drizzling consistency. Makes about 1 cup.
  • 02
  • For court bouillon, combine all ingredients with 1 litre of water and 1 tsp sea salt in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat, bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Cool to 60C, add fish and poach for 4-5 minutes or until fish is warmed through but still rare.
  • 03
  • To serve, remove skin from fish, halve horizontally without cutting all the way through, then open out flat and place on plates. Fan tomato slices over fish, then repeat with potato and scatter with salt cod. Drizzle with green herb mayonnaise, scatter with spring onions and season to taste.
Note Esqueixada is salt cod salad, a typical Catalan dish.

"My husband and I dined at Pearl in Melbourne, where I enjoyed the rare poached ocean trout. Would you please ask Geoff Lindsay to share this wonderful gluten-free dish?"
