2 x Ora king Salmon Portions
1/2 a small cucumber (100g)
1 x sml/med tomato
5-10 white anchovy
1 x heaped Tbsp baby capers
1 x heaped Tbsp chopped parsley.
Heat a medium cast-iron frying pan-
(Don't overcrowd the pan) over
medium-high heat and add a splash of oil. When the pan is hot, place the salmon pieces in the pan,
skin side down.
Place a piece of baking paper on the flesh side. Place a 1 kg weight - such as a heavy pot or another pan on top
of the salmon pieces. Cook for 2 minutes, lifting the weight once or twice and moving the salmon pieces gently around the pan. Remove the pan from the heat, remove the weight
and the paper then, using a spatula, gently flip each piece of
salmon. Leave to rest for 1 minute. Cooking times are based on the portions being about 160g each.
Serve with a sprinkle of sea salt.
NOTE: If you don't have a pan large enough for all the fillets, try the same technique using the flat plate of the BBQ. Remember to clean the plate thoroughly before and after.
Serve with a salsa of cucumber, tomato, capers and white anchovy. Dress the salsa with lemon juice, olive oil, a splash of white wine vinegar and salt.

LEMON, HERB AND GARLIC ROAST CHICKEN
For tender, fall off the bone meat and soft skin, roast between 150 and 180 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on the weight.
For firmer meat and crisp skin, roast the chicken around 220 degrees C for 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours, depending on the weight. In our recipe below, we roast a No 12 chicken at 220 degrees C for about 1 1/2 hours.
Use a roasting pan with a rack or large baking dish. Season the whole chicken with salt and pepper and fill the cavity with lemon wedges, garlic, oregano or rosemary, salt and fresh ground pepper. Refrigerate the seasoned chicken, uncovered, for an hour, or overnight. This will help the skin become extra crisp and the meat extra juicy. You can skip this step if you don't have the time.
You can place veggies around the chicken for the final 20min or so depending on how thick you like them.

AGI'S PERFECT SCOTCH FILLET
2 x 250g grass fed yearling scotch fillets steaks.
Salt and Pepper.
1. Pre-heat BBQ char grill on high.
2. The best tip I could offer for cooking a perfect steak is to take it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes prior to cooking. This allows the steak to come to room temperature so it cooks evenly throughout.
3. Prior to cooking, give the steak a liberal seasoning of salt and pepper and a light smearing of oil. This will give help the steak lovely caramelized crust
4. sear the steak for about 1 and a half minutes the rotate 90 degrees on to another section of the char for another minute. This will give you that desired criss-cross pattern.
5. Flip and repeat the process for the second side.
Rest the steak for 4-5 minutes.
