Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Beef tongue sandwich


The tongue would have to be one of the most underrated cuts of beef. Don't tell squeamish guests what you're serving; they'll never guess. The raspy exterior peels away easily once the tongue is cooked.

You'll need

1 (about 800gm) corned beef tongue 1 baguette For spreading: softened butter 5 radishes, thinly sliced on a mandolin 1 celery heart, thinly shaved lengthways 3 medium-boiled eggs, sliced   Sauce gribiche 3 hard-boiled eggs, yolks and whites separated 1 egg yolk 1 tbsp white wine vinegar 2 tsp Dijon mustard 400 ml vegetable oil 7 finely chopped cornichons 2 tbsp tiny salted capers, rinsed 2 tbsp each finely chopped parsley, chervil and tarragon

Method

  • 01
  • Cover tongue in a saucepan with plenty of cold water, bring to the boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 2 hours or until tender. Drain then, when cool enough to handle, peel off skin and thinly slice tongue across the grain.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for sauce gribiche, process boiled and raw egg yolks in a food processor with vinegar and mustard until combined then, with motor running, add oil in a thin steady stream until emulsified. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper. Finely chop cooked eggwhite and add to sauce with remaining ingredients, stir to combine and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Split baguette lengthways and spread generously with butter. Spread with sauce gribiche, then layer on tongue, radish, celery and sliced boiled egg, cut into portions and serve.
