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."

Mum’s spaghettini with braised chicken, tomato and rosemary sauce


You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 400 gm skinless chicken thigh fillets (about 6) 400 ml tomato passata 150 ml chicken stock 1 rosemary sprig 1 fresh bay leaf 600 gm dried spaghettini To serve: finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Method

  • 01
  • Heat half the olive oil in a large saucepan over low heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until translucent (5-7 minutes). Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add chicken, season to taste and cook, turning once, until browned (4-5 minutes). Add to onion mixture, then add tomato passata, 100ml stock, rosemary and bay leaf. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer until tender (1-1½ hours), adding more stock if sauce gets too thick. Set aside to cool slightly, then coarsely shred chicken and return to sauce, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Cook spaghettini in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (5-7 minutes), drain well, return to saucepan, add sauce, season to taste, toss to combine and serve hot scattered with grated parmesan.
This recipe is from the March 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“Would you please publish the secret to the chicken and tomato spaghettini at Sydney’s La Rosa? Don’t tell my nonna, but it’s better than hers.”
