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.

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."

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.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Garfish with potato and caper salad and quick pickled cucumber


Choose medium to large garfish for this recipe and ask your fishmonger to butterfly them for you, leaving the head and tail intact. King George whiting works equally well for this dish.

You'll need

800 gm small sebago potatoes, sliced 5mm thick 150 gm (½ cup) good-quality mayonnaise 30 gm cornichons, coarsely chopped 1½ tbsp salted baby capers, rinsed and drained 2 golden shallots, finely chopped 2 tbsp lemon juice, or to taste 8 garfish, butterflied, head and tail intact 2 lemons, halved lengthways and thinly sliced crossways 30 ml olive oil   Quick pickled cucumber Lebanese cucumbers, unpeeled, halved, seeds removed, thinly sliced 2 tbsp white wine vinegar 2 tsp caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • Combine potato in a saucepan with cold salted water, cover, bring to the boil over high heat. Uncover, cook until just tender (5-6 minutes), drain, transfer to a bowl. Combine mayonnaise, cornichons, capers, shallot and lemon juice in a separate bowl, season to taste, add to potato, toss to combine, set aside.
  • 02
  • For quick pickled cucumber, combine cucumber and 1 tsp sea salt in a sieve, stand 10 minutes. Squeeze out liquid, combine in a non-reactive bowl with remaining ingredients, season to taste, set aside.
  • 03
  • Preheat a char-grill over high heat. Season garfish cavities to taste, stuff with lemon slices, secure with kitchen string. Drizzle with oil, season to taste and char-grill, turning once, until golden and just cooked through (2-3 minutes each side). Serve hot with potato and caper salad and pickled cucumber.
