Chilled recipes for summer

When the mercury is rising, step away from the oven. These recipes are either raw, chilled or frozen and will cool you down in a snap.

Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Paul Carmichael's great cake

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."

You'll need

1 kg Dutch cream or sebago potatoes (about 5 large) 50 gm grated parmesan 2 egg yolks 110 gm “00” flour, plus extra for dusting 2 tbsp olive oil 3 lap cheong sausages, thinly sliced (see note) 1 small bunch gai lan (Chinese broccoli), halved crossways, stems halved 1 tbsp lemon juice, or to taste   Kombu butter 1½ tbsp shio kombu (see note) 200 gm cultured butter, softened 1¼ tbsp dried wakame (see note), finely ground in a spice grinder or small blender 2 tsp white soy sauce (shiro shoyu; see note)   Chilli dressing 2½ tbsp hot pepper condiment (see note) 2½ tbsp peanut oil 2 tsp Chinkiang vinegar 1½ tsp honey

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Wash, dry and score potatoes and bake on a tray until tender when pierced with a skewer (1¼-1½ hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for kombu butter, place shio kombu in 1½ tbsp water in a bowl and stand to rehydrate (5 minutes), then combine with butter, wakame and white soy sauce.
  • 03
  • For chilli dressing, mix ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • 04
  • Halve potatoes and scoop out flesh with a spoon (discard skins), press through a fine sieve into a bowl, then mix in parmesan and egg yolks, and season to taste with sea salt. Gently fold in flour, being careful not to overmix. Pinch off an eighth of the dough and roll on a lightly floured bench into a thin log, about 1.5cm wide, then cut into 2cm lengths. Transfer to trays lined with floured sheets of baking paper and repeat with remaining dough.
  • 05
  • Cook gnocchi in a large saucepan of simmering salted water until they float (1-1½ minutes), then cook for a further 30 seconds. Drain, refresh in iced water, drain again, then toss with olive oil in a bowl.
  • 06
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat and pan-fry gnocchi in 2 batches, turning occasionally with a flat spatula, until golden brown (3-5 minutes). Return all gnocchi to saucepan, add lap cheong, kombu butter and gai lan, season with salt and lemon juice, then toss to combine until leaves just wilt (30 seconds to 1 minute). Serve drizzled with chilli dressing.
