Seven ways to do dumplings

Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Best feta recipes

Feta's tang livens up all sorts of dishes, from beef shin rigatoni or blistered kale ribs to Greek-style roast lamb neck.

Recipes with zucchini

Whether served raw with olive oil, grated with fresh herbs, or pan-fried in a pancake - zucchini is a must-have ingredient when it comes to spring cooking.

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Melbourne's best late-night bars

Beetroot-cured salmon with fennel, capers and kipfler potatoes


You'll need

2 medium beetroot (about 200gm), coarsely grated 375 gm caster sugar 250 gm rock salt 1 bunch coriander, coarsely chopped 1 side of skinless salmon (about 1kg), pin-boned 500 gm kipfler potatoes, scrubbed 2 baby fennel bulbs, shaved horizontally 50 gm salted baby capers, rinsed and coarsely chopped 1 cup (loosely packed) baby watercress leaves (tips only), to serve 100 gm salmon roe, to serve   Aïoli 2 garlic cloves 2 egg yolks 200 ml olive oil 2 tbsp lemon juice

Method

  • 01
  • Combine beetroot, sugar, salt and coriander in a bowl. Place 2 sheets of plastic wrap, overlapping and long enough to enclose salmon, on a work surface. Spread half the salt mixture over plastic, place salmon on top and pack remaining salt mixture around fish. Wrap fish tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, turning halfway through.
  • 02
  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add potato and cook until tender (15-20 minutes), then drain and cool. When cool enough to handle, peel and cut into 5mm-thick diagonal slices and place in a bowl.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for aïoli, process garlic and yolk in a food processor until a smooth paste forms. With motor running, gradually add oil in a thin steady stream and process until emulsified. Add lemon juice and season to taste.
  • 04
  • Add fennel, capers and aïoli to potato and toss gently to combine. Unwrap cured salmon and wipe clean of salt mixture. Thinly slice with a sharp knife and serve with potato salad, watercress and salmon roe.

“Our trip to the Margan vineyards resulted in a fantastic lunch of beetroot-cured salmon and kipfler potatoes at the restaurant. Would you please ask chef José Miguel for the recipe.”
Nevil Conway, Roseville, NSW
