Autumn's most popular recipes 2017

As the weather started to cool down, your stoves were heating up with spicy curries, hearty breakfast dishes and comforting bowls of pasta. You balanced things out nicely with some greens but dessert wasn't entirely forgotten. Counting down from 30, here are your 2017 autumn favourites.

Egg custards with hazelnuts, trout roe and lemon balm


You'll need

50 gm hazelnuts 150 ml beaten egg (about 3 eggs) 375 ml dashi stock (see note) 50 gm freshly picked cooked spanner crab meat 50 gm trout roe 24 small lemon balm leaves (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Spread hazelnuts on an oven tray, roast until golden (4-5 minutes), rub with a tea towel to remove skins, halve nuts and set aside.
  • 02
  • Mix egg and dashi in a bowl. Divide crab meat equally among six 125ml ovenproof cups. Divide half the hazelnuts among cups, pour over egg mixture, then cover each tightly with plastic wrap. Steam in a large steamer over a saucepan of simmering water on medium heat until just set (10-15 minutes).
  • 03
  • Top custards with remaining hazelnuts, trout roe and lemon balm leaves, serve warm.

Note Instant dashi is available from Japanese grocers; follow packet directions to make the stock. Lemon balm is available from select greengrocers.


"This dish is really versatile. You can use any seafood or meat instead of the trout roe. It's important to use fresh crab meat in this recipe, rather than frozen or brined, so the custards don't go watery."
