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.

Strawberry and rose petal terrines with watermelon granita


You'll need

250 gm (1 punnet) strawberries, hulled, thinly sliced widthways 4 organic white roses, petals only (see note)   Watermelon granita 50 gm caster sugar 1 tsp rosewater 400 ml strained watermelon juice   Strawberry jelly 250 gm (1 punnet) strawberries, hulled 55 gm (¼ cup) caster sugar 4 sheets (titanium strength) gelatine, softened in cold water

Method

  • 01
  • For watermelon granita, combine sugar, rosewater and 50ml water in a saucepan over medium heat, bring to the boil, then remove from heat and cool. Add watermelon juice, strain, then freeze in a shallow tray for 3 hours, using a fork to scrape frequently until crystals form.
  • 02
  • For strawberry jelly, juice strawberries in a juicer or process in a food processor until smooth, then strain through a fine sieve. Combine with sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Squeeze excess water from gelatine, add to pan, stir to dissolve, then strain.
  • 03
  • To assemble terrines, lightly grease four ¾ cup-capacity dariole moulds, pour 1 tbsp jelly mixture into each and refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set. Arrange enough strawberry slices on top to cover, pour another tablespoon of jelly mixture over and refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set. Top with rose petals and pour another tablespoon of jelly mixture over. Continue alternating, setting jelly each time, until jelly is used (you may not use all the strawberries and rose petals), then refrigerate for 2 hours or until jelly is completely set.
  • 04
  • To serve, dip terrines briefly in hot water, then invert onto plates. Serve with watermelon granita to the side.
Note Organic rose petals suitable for consumption are best sourced from local gardens. Most roses sold commercially have been sprayed with insecticide.

“I took my wife to Albury’s Sourcedining for our anniversary. We shared the most wonderful strawberry terrine served with watermelon granita. Would chef Jodie Jones part with the recipe?”
Mason McQuarrie, Wodonga, Vic
