Seven ways to do dumplings

Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Best feta recipes

Recipes with zucchini

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Melbourne's best late-night bars

Tapanata-crusted trevalla with white polenta


You'll need

4 (about 250gm each) skinless blue eye trevalla fillets 40 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil 25 gm butter, coarsely chopped To serve: extra-virgin olive oil and lemon halves   Tapanata 200 gm black Riviera olives, pitted (see note) 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 1 tbsp thyme leaves ¼ cup (firmly packed) basil leaves, finely chopped 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil ¼ cup salted capers, rinsed and drained   White polenta 1½ litre (6 cups) chicken stock 250 ml (1 cup) milk 350 gm white polenta 50 gm butter, coarsely chopped 20 gm (¼ cup) finely grated parmesan

Method

  • 01
  • For tapanata, using a food processor, pulse ingredients until a coarse paste forms, season with freshly ground black pepper and set aside.
  • 02
  • For white polenta, bring stock and milk to the boil. Add polenta in a thin, steady stream, whisking continuously until incorporated. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon to prevent polenta from sticking to base of pan, until smooth and creamy (about 15 minutes). Stir through butter and parmesan, and keep covered with baking paper to prevent a skin forming.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200C. Season trevalla with freshly ground black pepper, and spread tapanata on one side. Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof frying pan, add fish and cook, tapanata-side up, until sealed (2-3 minutes). Add butter to pan, transfer to oven and bake until cooked through (4-5 minutes). Divide polenta among serving bowls, top each with a trevalla fillet and serve immediately with pan juices, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, and lemon halves to the side.
Note If Riviera olives are unavailable, substitute with any black olives.
