Beer & Food – The Perfect Match

It’s the perfect time of year for a thirst-slacking beer and with the almost endless variety of beers available today, you don’t  have to look far to find one that will match your taste buds and many of the dishes you may be offering up on your menu.

Beer Match
The Chancer Golden Ale – 4.5% ABV.  Tropical fruit aroma and restrained bitterness while mild carbonation and a dry finish make it the ideal thirst-slacking beer.

Recipe developed by Peter Kuruvita
Like James Squire, Peter Kuruvita always has a story to tell to accompany his recipes, whether it’s a traditional dish from his ancestral home or back along the spice trail to Australia. This issue Peter brings us Chicken Yassa, which he originally learnt from a Senegalian kitchen hand while working in London, nicely matched with The Chancer Golden Ale.

Chicken Yassa

Ingredients
• 1 kg chicken breasts
• 1 tbsp coarsely ground fresh black pepper
• 6 green chillies, chopped
• 1 cup lemon juice
• Salt
• 3 cloves of garlic
• 2 large onions sliced
• 1 tsp chilli flakes
• 100 ml vegetable oil
• 12 bamboo skewers, soaked in water

Instructions
Slice the chicken into 2 cm strips lengthways.
Place all the ingredients in a large non-reactive bowl, except the oil, with the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to marinate, preferably overnight.
The next day, remove from fridge and skewer each strip onto the bamboo skewers.
Set aside.
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Remove the onions from the marinade and add them to the pot. Sauté for 8 – 10 minutes or until soft and brown. Add the remaining marinade and reduced by half.
Lightly brush the skewers with oil and grill over charcoal, if possible.
Serve with the marinade as a dipping sauce.

Cook’s notes
Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55 – 60 g, unless specified.
