1980s recipes

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Apple desserts

Whether baked into a bubbling crumble, caramelised in a puff-pastry tart or served in an all-American pie, apples are a classic filling for fruity desserts. Here are the recipes we keep coming back to.

Grilled salmon chops with asparagus and lemon relish


This recipe perfectly illustrates the power of simplicity - the key to success is super-fresh, high-quality ingredients. Although purists may argue that a salmon cutlet isn't technically a chop, naysayers will be silenced once they tuck into this bright-flavoured dish.

You'll need

3 bunches asparagus, tough ends trimmed For brushing and drizzling: olive oil 4 salmon cutlets (about 220gm each)   Lemon relish 1 tbsp white wine vinegar 1 golden shallot, very finely diced ½ garlic clove, finely grated 1 lemon, plus juice of ½ 25 ml extra-virgin olive oil 25 ml lemon-infused extra-virgin olive oil 2½ tbsp coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method

  • 01
  • For lemon relish, combine vinegar, shallot and garlic in a bowl, then stand for shallot to soften and flavour to mellow (8-10 minutes). Trim ends from lemon (discard), then halve lengthways. Cut each half into quarters, then slice each wedge very thinly, discarding seeds. Add to shallot mixture, stir in extra-virgin olive oils, season to taste and set aside until required. Just before serving, stir in parsley.
  • 02
  • Heat a barbecue or char-grill pan to high. Drizzle asparagus with a little oil, season to taste and grill, turning occasionally, until just tender (2-3 minutes).
  • 03
  • Brush salmon lightly with oil, season to taste and grill, turning once, until browned on each side and cooked to your liking (1-2 minutes for medium-rare). Serve with grilled asparagus and lemon relish.
