Jamaican goat curry

"Goat is the world's most consumed meat and we hardly give it a look in Australia. I adore it in so many different preparations, from South-East Asian dishes through to Italian braises, but my favourite is Jamaican curry with its heady spices," says Evans. "I see spices as nature's medicine cabinet and use them in as much of my cooking as possible. If you can't get your hands on quality goat meat (farmers' markets are a good bet or online), then feel free to substitute lamb or another protein. But if you've never had goat before, I urge you to give it a whirl."

Prawn risotto with sweet spring peas and treviso radicchio


You'll need

2 litres fish stock 125 gm butter, chopped 100 ml olive oil 3 small onions, finely chopped 3 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced 150 ml dry white wine 500 gm carnaroli or other risotto rice 1 kg green prawns, peeled, cleaned and halved widthways 320 gm podded peas 1 head of radicchio, trimmed, leaves separated, washed, dried and torn into bite-sized pieces To serve: extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Place stock in a saucepan, bring to a simmer over medium heat and keep at a gentle simmer. Heat butter and olive oil in a large heavy-based saucepan, add onion and garlic and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 8 minutes or until soft. Add wine and simmer until almost evaporated. Add rice and cook for 2-3 minutes or until well coated in butter mixture. Add 1 cup hot stock and stir over medium heat until stock is absorbed. Add remaining stock, a cupful at a time, stirring frequently, allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding the next.
  • 02
  • Just before adding the last cupful of stock, stir in prawns, peas and remaining stock, then stir for another 5 minutes. Add radicchio and stir for 1-2 minutes or until just wilted, then season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • 03
  • Spoon risotto among bowls, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and serve immediately.
