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.

Crumbed oysters with anchovy, speck and mushrooms


You'll need

24 oysters For dusting: seasoned plain flour 4 eggs, lightly beaten with 200ml milk 210 gm (3 cups) fresh fine breadcrumbs 2 tbsp olive oil 200 gm speck, cut into 1cm lardons 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 550 gm assorted mushrooms, such as button, shiitake and oyster 5 anchovy fillets 1 tsp thyme leaves 1 tbsp Marsala For deep-frying: vegetable oil

Method

  • 01
  • Pat oysters dry with absorbent paper. Place flour, eggs and milk mixture, and breadcrumbs in separate bowls. Dust oysters with flour, then dip into eggwash and coat in breadcrumbs. Place in a single layer on a tray and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan, add speck and garlic and sauté over medium-high heat until speck is golden brown (3-4 minutes), then add mushrooms and cook until tender (3-4 minutes). Stir in anchovies and thyme, cook until anchovies have dissolved, then increase heat to high. Add Marsala to deglaze pan and season to taste.
  • 03
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large deep saucepan or deep-fryer to 180C. Add oysters, in batches, and deep-fry until crisp and golden (1-2 minutes, be careful hot oil will spit). Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot with mushrooms and speck.
