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."

Neil Perry: Whiting, Sicilian-style


You'll need

For frying: extra virgin olive oil 8 large whiting fillets, pin-boned 1 red onion, diced 2 celery stalks, diced 50 gm (1/3 cup) pine nuts, roasted 50 gm (1/3 cup) currants or raisins 2 tbsp honey 3 tbsp red wine vinegar 1 handful dill, roughly chopped ½ bunch chives, about 15 gm, roughly chopped To serve: couscous

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a little oil in a large pan. Place the fish in the pan, skin side down. Cook for about 1 minute, then gently turn over and cook for about 30 seconds on the other side. You will need to cook the fish in two or three batches. Remove the fillets and place on a baking tray, keeping them warm in the oven while you cook the others. Be careful not to overcook the fish as it has a very delicate flesh.
  • 02
  • Heat a little more oil in a separate pan and add the onion and some sea salt. Cook until softened. Add the celery, a dash more oil, the pine nuts and the currants or raisins, then the honey, red wine vinegar, dill and chives. Season with freshly cracked black pepper. You should have a sweet-sour tasting vinaigrette.
  • 03
  • Place two fish fillets on each plate and spoon a generous amount of the sauce over the top. Alternatively, serve this dish banquet-style, on a large platter with couscous to the side.

"The sweet-sour nature of this beautiful dish comes from the two-century Moorish occupation of Sicily. Lots of Sicilian cooking involves fruit, and couscous is used often. Serve any of the delicious leftover sauce with pan-fried chicken, duck or lamb. It is not always necessary to pin-bone fish before cooking, but it does make for easier eating. Simply take a pair of fish tweezers (available from kitchenware shops), feel for the bones with your fingers, gently press down on the flesh either side of the bones and pluck the bones out - it is that easy." - Neil Perry
