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."

Light and healthy recipes

With fresh ingredients and lots of spices, these light and healthy recipes are perfect for summer.

Veal cutlets with warm cabbage and celeriac slaw


Shredding the cabbage and celeriac on a mandolin makes light work of this warm salad, though a box grater also works well for the celeriac.

You'll need

2 tbsp olive oil ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 400 gm (about ¼) cabbage, thinly shaved 1 celeriac, shredded 30 gm Dijon mustard 1 tbsp each red wine vinegar and lemon juice, or to taste 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil   Crumbed veal cutlets 70 gm (1 cup) coarse sourdough breadcrumbs Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 2 tsp each finely chopped thyme and flat-leaf parsley 4 veal cutlets 1 egg, lightly beaten For dusting: seasoned plain flour 2 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For crumbed veal cutlets, preheat oven to 200C. Combine breadcrumbs, rind and herbs in a bowl, and season to taste. Dip cutlets first in egg, then in flour, and then crumbs, coating well and shaking off excess in between. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add cutlets and cook, turning occasionally, until golden, then roast until cooked to your liking (6-8 minutes for medium-rare). Keep warm.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, and sauté until tender (3-4 minutes). Add cabbage and celeriac, and toss until just wilted (3-4 minutes). Transfer to a large bowl.
  • 03
  • Add mustard, vinegar and lemon juice to the pan, and stir to combine. Add extra-virgin olive oil, stir and season to taste. Toss half the dressing with cabbage mixture to combine. Serve warm slaw with cutlets and remaining dressing.
