In today's episode we're going to take a novel approach to deep-fried prawns, when we use a classic waffle batter, with few adjustments, and make crispy, golden deep-fried prawns.
Ingredients
  • 1Kg Prawns
  • 160g All-purpose flour
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 10ml Baking powder
  • 15ml Sugar
  • 5ml Garlic powder
  • 5ml Ground ginger
  • 5ml White pepper
  • 180ml Warm milk
  • 40ml Roasted sesame oil
  • 1 Egg
  • Oil for deep-frying
Instructions
  1. In today's episode we're going to take a novel approach to deep-fried prawns, when we use a classic waffle batter, with few adjustments, and make crispy, golden deep-fried prawns.
  2. Starting with the batter, place 160g all-purpose flour in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add 2.5ml salt, 10ml baking powder, 15ml sugar, 5ml each garlic powder, ground ginger and white pepper, 40ml roasted sesame oil, 180ml warm milk and one large egg.
  4. Whisk these all together until smooth, then put it aside to rest.
  5. Take out a kilogram of prawns. Snap the heads off and use your scissors to cut the shell up to and including the second last segment.
  6. Peel away the shell keeping the tail in tact, then remove the vein from the prawns. Continue until all of the prawns are shelled.
  7. Prawns have a very strong muscle that runs down the length of their belly. To prevent the prawns from from curling up during frying, you need to make shallow incisions through the muscle at each segment of the prawn.
  8. Back to the batter. In most cases, you will need to thin the batter a little before use. Do this by adding small quantities of milk and whisking it in thoroughly until you achieve a smooth running batter. I normally need to add 30 to 50ml of milk to do this.
  9. Heat a large pan of oil to 160c.
  10. Dip the prawns one by one in the batter and carefully lower them into the oil.
  11. Fry the prawns until crisp and golden. This will take 2 to 3 minutes, turning halfway through yo ensure even browning.
  12. Use a pair of tongs to remove the prawns as they become ready and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  13. The prawns are ideal as a starter or main course, served with the accompaniments of your choice.

Recipe type: Pork
Serves: 2-4
 
Just a few days ago we did sous vide pork fillet to achieve a supremely juicy, tender result. Today we're going to coat and deep-fry pork fillet medallions to get an equally tender and juicy result.
Ingredients
  • 600g Pork fillet
  • 4 Cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Finely chopped fresh ginger (same quantity as garlic)
  • 60ml Light soy sauce
  • 30ml Medium cream sherry
  • 20ml Sugar
  • 160ml Potato starch
  • Roasted sesame oil

Instructions
  1. Just a few days ago we did sous vide pork fillet to achieve a supremely juicy, tender result. Today we're going to coat and deep-fry pork fillet medallions to get an equally tender and juicy result.
  2. Starting with the marinade, finely chop 4 cloves garlic, the equivalent quantity of fresh ginger and measure 20ml sugar, 30ml medium cream sherry and 60ml light soy sauce.
  3. Stir these all together and put this aside.
  4. Take a pork fillet of around 600g in weight and trim away all of the connective tissue from the ends.
  5. Start lifting the membrane, or silverskin and trimming it from the meat.
  6. Cut the fillet into medallions of around 30mm in thickness.
  7. Working with on at a time, fold the medallion in breadfilm or clingfilm and tap it down to 10mm in thickness using your meat mallet.place the meat in a shallow dish and add the marinade, making sure everything is coated.
  8. Transfer this to your refrigerator for 60 minutes to marinate.
  9. Measure two thirds of a cup of potato starch into a bowl. Sprinkle some of this starch over a platter. This is where the coated meat will rest, and the layer of starch will prevent the coating from being damaged.
  10. Lift the pork from the marinade, piece by piece and dredge it in the potato starch to get a good solid coating.
  11. Transfer these to the platter.
  12. Fill a large pan with oil to a depth of 1 inch and heat it to 180c or 350f.
  13. Carefully lower the pork medallions into the oil and allow these to fry for 4 minutes, turning every minute.
  14. Lift the pork from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  15. You may notice a slight flaky residue on the surface of the coating. This is quite normal. Brush the pork coating lightly with roasted sesame oil and this will disappear.
  16. Serve the pork piping hot accompanied with lemon wedges and the accompaniments of your choice.

  2. Pork fillet gets pretty bad rap generally, as it tends to dry out and toughen when cooked using traditional methods. This sous vide recipe elevates the downtrodden pork fillet to new heights. It is supremely tender, juicy and tasty. Once you've tried this, therd is no turning back.
  3. You will need a meat syringe, a sous vide cooker, digital pot or regular pot on an induction range, a vacuum packing machine and a tiny bit of xanthan gum.
  4. To start, measure out 100g butter and melt this in your microwave, 30ml apple cider vinegar, 10ml garlic powder, 10ml fine salt, 10ml caster sugar and 1.25ml xanthan gum.
  5. Place all of these in a tall jug and use your stick blender to emulsify the mixture. The xanthan gum is bipolar and effectively bonds the water based liquid to the fat in the butter. This emulsion will never separate, even when remelted.
  6. Load half of the butter emulsion into your syringe. You need to do this using a narrow spoon. Unfortunately the emulsion will draw up through the needle.
  7. Insert the needle into ond end of the fillet and inject half of the emulsion into the meat, withrawing the needle progressively as you go.
  8. Repeat this on the other end of the fillet.
  9. Use butcher twine to tie off the ends of the meat, effectively trapping the emulsion inside.
  10. Continue with the second fillet.
  11. Vacuum pack both the fillets, making sure to double seal both ends of the bags.
  12. Zap these into your sous vide cooker or digital pot that has been preheated to 55c or 131f. Allow these to cook slowly for 1 to 4 hours. I normally let them cook for 2 to 2.5 hours, and they are perfect.
  13. To finish the pork fillets off, remove them from the bags and sear them in a large smoking hot pan with a little butter and oil.
  14. Slice the fillets at angles and serve with the accompaniments and garnishes of your choice.

Roasted Buttermilk Pork Shoulder - Exquisitely Tender & Juicy Roast Pork
Author: 
Recipe type: Pork
 
Pork shoulder is one of the most under-rated cuts of meat, and it is mostly used for sausage making, and cured cold cuts. When roasted, it does have a tendency to dry out and toughen, however this simple procedure will give you a succulent, tender and amazingly juicy roast, comparable to roasts made with far more expensive cuts of meat.
Ingredients
  • 2kg Pork shoulder, skin and fat on
  • 5 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp White pepper
  • 2 Tsp Garlic powder
  • 3 Tsp Onion flakes
  • 2 Tsp Hot smoked paprika
  • 2 Tsp paprika
  • 2 Tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tsp Dried thyme
  • 2 Tsp Dried oregano
  • 1 Tsp Basil
Instructions
  1. Starting with 2kg of pork shoulder with the fat cap and skin still intact, we want to score the skin.
  2. Use a razor sharp knife to slice through the skin and the fat. Make your scores about 20mm apart.
  3. Swing the meat around and score across the first lot of cuts to create the lattice pattern.
  4. Fold the top of a large vacuum packing bag inside out. This keeps the sealing edge clean, and helps to keep the bag open.
  5. Drop the pork shoulder into the bag, and pour 500ml of cultured buttermilk into the bag.
  6. Fold the bag opening back and vacuum pack the contents making sure to double seal the top. Notice that I have elevated the vacuum packer. This inhibits the flow of the liquid upwards allowing air to get sucked out first. As soon as you see the liquid rising, hit the stop button, followed by the seal button. Follow this with the second seal.
  7. Rub the bag down to make sure the buttermilk is evenly distributed, then transfer this to your refrigerator for a full 24 hours.
  8. The following day, remove the pork from the bag and place it on a rack in a large roasting pan. Pour the buttermilk into a jug.
  9. Add 5 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons white pepper, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 3 teaspoons onion flakes, 2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika, 2 teaspoons regular paprika, 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, 2 teaspoon dried thyme, 2 teaspoons dried oregano and 1 teaspoon dried basil.
  10. Stir this all until well combined.
  11. Spoon half of this mixture over the pork. Notice that the pork is skin side down.
  12. Turn the pork over and spoon the remaining liquid over the skin and sides of the shoulder.
  13. Roast the pork in a preheated oven at 180c or 350f for 90 minutes undisturbed. Remove the pan from the oven, cover carefully with foil and allow this to stand for 15 minutes before carving.
  14. There are 2 ways to carve this roast. The first is from the skin side following the score lines in the skin. This will give you nice thick, juicy slices.
  15. Alternatively, flip the meat over and slice it thinly from the meat side. This will give you a more traditional carved roast with little bits of the crispy crackling edging each piece.
  16. Thats it for today, thanks for watching... please subscribe, like and share, and we'll see you again tomorrow.

Deep-Fried Buttermilk Chicken - Southern Fried Chicken with a Twist!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Chicken
Cuisine: American
 
Deep-fried buttermilk chicken is all-time favorite, and this recipe gives it a whole new twist. The process is quite drawn out, but easy, however as a result this recipe is more suited to bulk production for parties and catering.
Ingredients
  • 8-12 Pieces chicken
  • 400ml Cultured buttermilk
  • 30ml Dijon mustard
  • 15ml Salt
  • 10ml White pepper
  • 10ml Cayenne pepper
  • 1¾ Cups All-purpose flour
  • ¼ Cup Corn starch
  • 15ml Garlic powder
  • 15ml Onion powder
  • 15ml Fine salt
  • 4 Eggs
Instructions
  1. To start, measure 400ml buttermilk and30ml Dijon mustard into a jug.
  2. Measure out a tablespoon salt, 2 teaspoons white pepper and 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper and add these to the jug.
  3. Mix this all until well combined.
  4. Place 8 to 12 chicken pieces on a chopping board and use your carving fork to perforate the pieces all over.
  5. Open a large vacuum packing bag and fold the top section inside out. This prevents messing on the bag and helps to keep the bag open.
  6. Place the chicken pieces in the bag and pour in the buttermilk mixture.
  7. Fold the top of the bag back and vacuum seal the bag.
  8. Notice that I have elevated the vacuum packer. This allows all of the air to escape while inhibiting the flow of the liquid upward and into the machine. As soon as the liquid starts to rise, hit the stop button and then the seal button.
  9. It is good idea to double seal the top and bottom of the bag.
  10. Place the bag of chicken in your refrigerator overnight for the buttermilk to do its magic.
  11. The following day, remove the bag from the refrigerator.
  12. For this step you need a large pot on an induction range, a slow cooker, or a digital pot like this one.
  13. Half-fill the pot with water and set the temperature to 76c or 169f.
  14. When the water has reached this temperature, place the bag of chicken pieces in the pot. Set your timer for 2 hours and go and drink coffee.
  15. After 2 hours, remove the bag and cut it open. Place a rack in a large pan and pour the chicken onto the rack. All of the liquid will drain through the rack, and can be discarded.
  16. Transfer the chicken pieces to a clean dish towel, and pat them dry using another dish towel.
  17. For the coating combine 1 and three quarter cups of all-purpose flour with a quarter cup of corn starch and 15ml of fine salt.
  18. Whisk 4 eggs thoroughly and pour these into a second bowl.
  19. Add a tablespoon of garlic powder and a tablespoon of onion powder to the flour and mix this in.
  20. Take a lityle of the flour mixture and sprinkle it over a large platter. This is where the coated chicken will rest, and the flour prevents the chicken from sticking to the platter and damaging the coating.
  21. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dunk the chicken in the egg to wet it all over.
  22. Transfer it to the flour and dredge it to get its first coating.
  23. Back to the egg to wet all of the flour.
  24. And again into the fliur to get a good solid coating all over.
  25. Continue until all of the chicken pieces are complete.
  26. Allow the coated chicken to set for 20 minutes before continuing.
  27. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat it to 170c or 340f.
  28. Carefully add the chicken pieces to the oil and fry these for 6 to 8 minutes until the coating is crispy and golden. The chicken is already cooked, so the frying process is purely to crisp the coating and reheat the chicken.
  29. Remove the pieces from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  30. Serve the chicken piping hot with the accompaniments of your choice and enjoy.

  1. To start, you will need 300g of all-purpose flour, 5ml or a teaspoon of baking powder, 2.5ml or half teaspoon of salt, 60g of vegetable fat or shortening and 125ml or a half cup of warm water.
  2. Place the flour, salt and baking powder in your food processor. Pulse this briefly to combine.
  3. Add the shortening to the bowl and machine this for about 10 seconds to cut this into the flour.
  4. Pour in the water and run the machine until the dough comes together and runs around the edge of the bowl.
  5. Tilting the machine from side while it mixes the dough helps to get a good even consistency in the dough.
  6. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and press it into a block. Wrap the dough in cling-wrap and allow it to rest on the counter for 30 minutes.
  7. After resting, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  8. Place one of the balls on a lightly floured work surface and flatten it out into a disc of about 7 inches or 18cm.
  9. Use your rolling pin to roll these out until about 9 to 10 inches in diameter or 22 to 25cm. At this stage they will be about 1mm in thickness.
  10. Repeat this until all of the tortillas are formed.
  11. Heat a dry pan over high heat. When the pan is smoking hot drop a few of the tortillas into the pan.
  12. Toast them for 30 to 40 seconds, then flip them over and repeat.
  13. Remove these from the pan and continue with the remaining tortillas.
  14. You can keep your tortillas fresh for a few days in an airtight container or zip lock bag, or freeze them indefinitely.
  15. To make your quesadillas, dice a half a red pepper, and finely chop one large pickled jalapeño pepper.
  16. Mix these together in a bowl.
  17. Grate 200g of mature cheddar or Monterey Jack and place this in a bowl. Add the mixed peppers and mix these into the cheese.
  18. To make up the quesadillas, spread a generous dose of the filling over one side of a tortilla.
  19. Fold the open side over the filling and press it down to secure.
  20. Heat a pan over medium high heat and drop the quesadillas into the pan.
  21. Toast the quesadillas until the cheese is well melted, turning every 90 seconds.
  22. Remove the quesadillas from the pan, cut them through the center and serve immediately accompanied with sour cream for dipping.

Author: 
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4-6
 
Bolognese is an all-time favorite, however the real thing is not simply fried ground beef and tomato, and this fact is what separates the men from the boys. True bolognese has an incredible depth of flavor, aroma and texture..... and this is how to do it.
Ingredients
  • 1 Medium onion
  • 1 Celery stalk
  • 1 Large carrot
  • 10ml Garlic (4 cloves)
  • 60g Butter
  • 45ml Olive oil
  • 200g Streaky bacon
  • 225g Lean pork shoulder
  • 450g Lean ground beef
  • 250ml Beef stock
  • 250ml Dry white wine
  • 800g Italian style crushed tomatoes
  • 5ml Salt
  • 2.5ml Cracked black pepper
  • 7.5ml Dried sage
  • 15ml Dried oregano
  • 2.5ml Dried chilli flakes
  • 1.25ml Ground nutmeg
  • 250ml Full cream milk
  • Pasta of your choice for serving
Instructions
  1. To start, finely chop a celery stalk, a large carrot, a medium onion and 4 cloves of garlic.
  2. Measure out 45ml or 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 60g of butter.
  3. Finely chop 200g of streaky bacon and 225g of lean pork shoulder and place this in a mixing bowl along with 450g of lean ground beef. Massage these together until completely combined.
  4. Combine 250ml of beef stock with 250ml of dry white wine and put this aside.
  5. Combine 5ml or a teaspoon of salt with 2.5ml or a half teaspoon of cracked black pepper, 7.5ml or one and a half tespoon of dried sage, 15ml or a tablespoon of dried oregano, 2.5ml of dried chilli flakes and 1.25ml or a quarter teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and put this aside.
  6. In addition, you need an 800g can of Italian style crushed tomatoes, and 250ml or a cup of full cream milk.
  7. Heat the butter and oil over medium high heat until bubbling and add the finely chopped onion, garlic, celery and carrot.
  8. Fry these until the onion is translucent.... about 6 to 8 minutes.
  9. Add the three ground meats and fry these until lightly browned.... this will take another 6 to 8 minutes.
  10. Increase the heat to high and pour in the combined beef stock and wine.
  11. Bring this to a boil and continue cokoing until the liquid has almost reduced to nothing.
  12. Turn the heat down to a simmer and add the mixed herbs and spices. Stir this in thoroughly and allow this simmer gently for 20 minutes.
  13. Pour in the crushed tomato, raise the heat to a boil, reduce the heat to a low simmer and allow this to simmer away gently for 2 to 4 hours, partially covered. Give the pot a stir every so often, and add a dash of wine every time the mixture gets too dry. The 2 to 4 hours simmering time is up to you. 2 hours being the minimum, however the longer you simmer the deeper the flavor and texture of the bolognese will become.
  14. About 10 minutes before serving, pour in the milk and continue cooking until the sauce reaches your preferred consistency and you're done.
  15. Serve the bolognese with the pasta of your choice topped with a generous dose of finely shredded Parmesan cheese and enjoy.
  16. This recipe will make 4 to 6 portions, and can be scaled up to any size with the limiting factor being the size of your pot or pan.
