INGREDIENTS

  • 1 kg watermelon rind removed & cut into bite sized pieces
  • 150 grams green prawns, shell on trimmed
  • 1 pomegranate de-seeded
  • 1/3 cup mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup salted shelled pistachio nuts
  • 2 tsp sumac
  • salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
  • Labne
  • 500 grams plain Greek style yoghurt
  • 5 grams sea salt
  • Pickled Fennel, Cucumber & Red Onion
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 small fennel bulb trimmed (fronds reserved) and finely sliced
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber peeled into ribbons
  • 1/2 small red onion halved and finely sliced

METHOD

For the labne, combine yoghurt and salt together, mixing until well combined. Line a sieve with two pieces of clean chux and pour the yoghurt mixture into the centre. Bring the edges of the chux together and secure tightly with a rubber band, to enclose the yoghurt mixture. Place sieve over a bowl and refrigerate for 12 hours. For the pickled cucumber, place vinegar, sugar, zest and oregano together in a mixing bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add cucumber and onion, stirring to combine and refrigerate for 15 minutes. To assemble salad, spread labne across the base of a large serving platter and sprinkle over 1 teaspoon sumac and freshly ground black pepper. In a large mixing bowl combine watermelon, beans, fennel, drained pickled cucumber and red onion, tossing gently to combine. Place mixture over the labne and sprinkle over the pomegranate seeds, mint, pistachios, remaining sumac, salt and pepper to taste.

Meanwhile, place yolks, mustard, roasted garlic, salt and pepper together in a small food processor and pulse to combine. With the motor going, slowly add oils until mixture becomes thick.

  4. Preheat barbecue to high.
  5. Place crab onto the grill or grill plate and cook for 5 minutes each side, or until cooked through. Remove from heat quickly to avoid overcooking and place on a serving platter, cover in foil to keep warm.
  6. Repeat step 5 with prawns for 2 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  7. Repeat step 5 with mussels for 2-3 minutes or until mussels start opening.
  8. Repeat step 5 with marinated squid, pipi’s and fish fillets for 1-2 minutes or until opaque or pipis start opening.
  9. To serve seafood platter, drizzle remaining dressing over the barbecued seafood and serve with lemon and saffron aioli and lemon wedges.
