Meat is the basic ingredient in Australian cuisine used in most recipes. In restaurants, customers are offered dishes from pork, beef, lamb, poultry, and game. Among some favorite Australian foods are steak with blood, beefsteak with bananas, stewed mutton ham, boiled brains with butter and red wine, tongue ragout with vegetables, Melbourne chicken with eggplant, chicken cooked in beer, veal chops under blackberry sauce, fried turkey and kenguryatin in kvadonga sauce. Grilled dishes are also very popular. In Australia, you can easily find a barbecue area as this is something of a national sport among the locals.
The Australian menu uses fresh fish, lobsters, blue crabs, prawns, freshwater oysters and scallops, as well as shark lips, and fried eels, which are abundantly sold in supermarkets and fish markets. They are prepared according to refined recipes under multi-component sauces, and served with a rice garnish. Traditional dishes include Tasmanian glazed salmon baked with tomatoes, croutons, barracuda and barramundi fish, fried snapper or white-bait, and trout cooked in a special way. The fish is put on a brazier with coals covered with a layer of grass. On top of it is laid another layer of grass with additional portions of hot coals. The fish baked in this way has a very special taste. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
