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."

You'll need

4 American-style pork rib racks (about 700gm each, see note) For smoking: applewood and oak chips, soaked for 1 hour in cold water, drained (see note)   Barbecue rub 80 gm sea salt flakes 2½ tbsp smoked paprika 2 tbsp black peppercorns, coarsely crushed 1 tbsp onion powder 2 tsp garlic powder ½ tsp each smoked paprika and cayenne   Barbecue sauce 2½ tbsp tomato sauce 2 tbsp brown sugar 1 tbsp soy sauce 15 ml hot sauce (see note) 2 tsp black peppercorns, coarsely crushed 1 tsp each onion powder, garlic powder and Korean chili powder ½ tsp each smoked paprika and sweet paprika   Vietnamese-style coleslaw 2½ tbsp each fish sauce and white vinegar 50 gm caster sugar Juice of ½ lime 300 gm each Chinese cabbage and red cabbage, shredded on a mandolin ¼ cup (loosely packed) mint and coriander, coarsely torn 3 spring onions, thinly sliced

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat a coal barbecue to low heat (120C). For barbecue rub, combine ingredients in a bowl then rub all over ribs and set aside. Add wood chips to hot coals and heat until smoking, then grill ribs turning once until starting to colour (1 hour). Wrap in foil and cook, topping up coal and wood chips as necessary until tender and meat falls off the bone (1½-2 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for barbecue sauce, combine ingredients in a bowl with 2 tsp water and set aside for flavour to develop (30-35 minutes).
  • 03
  • For Vietnamese-style coleslaw, whisk fish sauce, vinegar, caster sugar, lime juice and 50ml water. Just before serving, toss cabbage, herbs and spring onion in a bowl with dressing to combine.
  • 04
  • To serve, unwrap ribs and brush thickly with barbecue sauce mixture. Serve hot with Vietnamese-style coleslaw and with extra barbecue sauce to the side.

Note Try to find pork ribs with the most amount of meat you can. Clean the silver skin off the back of the ribs using a fork or small knife to pry it off using a tea towel to secure. Applewood and oak chips are available from barbecue shops. At Papi Chulo they use Frank's Red Hot sauce and Yamasa Soy Sauce.
