Please enjoy this specially made Fine Dining recipe, made with great-tasting Barambah Organics products.

Ingredients

Calamari

  • 1 piece local fresh calamari
  • 50% olive oil
  • 50% vegetable oil

Cucumber

  • 50ml water
  • 3g salt
  • 50ml chardonnay vinegar
  • 30ml water
  • 20g sugar

Yoghurt

  • Barambah’s All Natural Yoghurt
  • Barambah’s Full Cream Milk

Dill Oil

  • 1 bunch dill picked
  • Vegetable oil

Method

Calamari

  1. Clean calamari by removing skin, wings, tentacles and innards
  2. Cut open the tube so you have 1 flat piece of calamari
  3. Place in a freezer for about 15min to get it extremely cold
  4. Slice as thinly as possible length ways
  5. Heat oil to 54° and place calamari in oil for 4-6 minutes to firm the protein but remain tender
  6. Drain well and season with salt and lemon juice

Cucumber

  1. Slice cucumbers lengthways as thin as possible. Place in salted water for 3 minutes
  2. Mix together the remaining ingredients and place cucumbers in pickle brine for 3 minutes
  3. Remove and drain well

Yoghurt

  1. Adjust the consistency of the yoghurt with milk and set aside

Dill Oil

  1. Pick the bunch of dill and with a pot of boiling water blanch the dill for 30 seconds. Refresh in iced water. Drain well. Squeeze any water that might be in the herbs still
  2. Blend on high speed with vegetable oil. Add just enough oil to just blend the dill to a thick paste
  3. Hang oil in muslin overnight and what you are left with is an intense bright green dill flavoured oil

To serve thinly slice apple, spoon the yoghurt onto the plate, add the oil. Make a small pile of squid, a small pile of cucumber and a few slivers of apple. Finish with foraged flowers.
