Coconut crab and green mango salad

"This salad bursts with fresh, vibrant flavours and became a signature on my Paramount menus," says Christine Manfield. "I capitalised on using green mangoes in many dishes as they became more widely available. Blue swimmer crabs from South Australia have the most delicious sweet meat. It's best to buy them whole, cook them yourself and carefully pick the meat from the shell - a tedious task but it gives the best flavour. This entree also works well with spanner crab meat (you can buy this in packs ready cooked from reliable fishmongers). The sweetness of the crab, the richness of the fresh coconut and the sourness of green mango make a wonderful partnership. It's all about harmony on the palate and using the very best produce."

Pork pizza with provolone and peach and rocket salad


You'll need

1 fennel bulb, coarsely chopped 8 fresh bay leaves 2 tbsp black peppercorns 5 star anise 400 gm piece boneless pork shoulder 1 litre (4 cups) olive oil For brushing: extra-virgin olive oil 120 gm provolone, thinly sliced   Pizza dough 1 tbsp dried yeast 500 gm (22/3 cup) “00” flour 1 tbsp olive oil   Peach and rocket salad 30 ml white wine vinegar 1 tbsp leatherwood honey 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cups (loosely packed) baby rocket 1 yellow peach, sliced into wedges 20 gm walnuts

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 230C. Combine fennel, bay leaves and spices in a casserole large enough to fit pork snugly, add pork, skin-side up, cover with olive oil, season to taste and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 160C and roast until meat is very tender (1½-2 hours), then cool in oil. When cool enough to handle, remove from oil (discard oil), coarsely shred meat (discard skin and sinew) and set aside.
  • 02
  • For pizza dough, combine yeast and 250ml lukewarm water in a small bowl and set aside until beginning to foam (7-10 minutes). Meanwhile, combine flour and 1 tbsp sea salt in a large bowl, form a well in centre and add yeast mixture and olive oil. Stir to combine, then knead until smooth (5-6 minutes). Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and set aside in a warm place until doubled in size (1-1½ hours).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Knock back dough, divide into four pieces, knead into balls, cover with a tea towel and set aside to rest (20 minutes), then roll on a lightly floured surface to 5mm thick. Transfer to oiled oven trays, brush with extra-virgin olive oil, scatter over half the cheese, then the pork, then remaining cheese. Bake in batches until golden and crisp (10-15 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for peach and rocket salad, whisk vinegar, honey and olive oil in a large bowl, season to taste. Add remaining ingredients, toss to combine, scatter over pizza and serve hot.
This recipe is from the January 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“At Ut Si Café in Perth, Tasmania I enjoyed a pork pizza topped with peach and rocket salad. The tender, slow-cooked pork was a highlight. Would the chef share the recipe?”
