What does an Australian cuisine dish look like? What does it taste like? How do you make it? These are the questions we’ll answer in this blog post. Before we get into that, though, I’d just like to point out that Australia is home to some of the most amazing cuisines around. Some of the best chefs in the world come from here! If you’re looking for an epicurean adventure while you’re visiting Australia, here are ten dishes you should try:
Australian cuisine is a diverse fusion of various styles of cooking and ingredients, developed over time by the different waves of migration that have come to Australia.
Australian cuisine is a diverse fusion of various styles of cooking and ingredients, developed over time by the different waves of migration that have come to Australia. The first inhabitants of Australia were the indigenous Aboriginal Australians who arrived more than 40 000 years ago.
The British colonised Australia in 1788 and their culinary influence remains today. During this time there was also an influx of immigrants from Ireland, Scotland and Wales who brought with them their own recipes and ingredients which became part of Australian cuisine as well.
Vegemite is a dark brown, salty and yeasty spread that was first produced in 1922. It’s made from beer yeast, vegetables and salt.
Vegemite was invented by Dr Cyril P Callister as an attempt to create cheap and nutritious food for Australia’s soldiers during World War I (1914-18). In addition to its nutritional value, Vegemite contains B vitamins which help boost your energy levels as well as aiding digestion. The taste of Vegemite can be described as savory with slight hints of caramelized malt or roasted nuts depending on who you ask!
Lamb rack, a cut of lamb that includes the rib bones and a small portion of meat on either side, is often served as a roast. It’s best served rare or medium-rare so that you can taste the full flavor of this tender cut of meat.
If you want to try something new with your lamb rack, serve it with mint jelly!
Kangaroo is a healthy meat, low in fat and high in protein. It’s also a good source of iron and zinc. Kangaroo meat contains more than twice the amount of vitamin B12 found in beef, lamb or pork – an important nutrient that helps maintain your energy levels during exercise.
In fact, eating kangaroo has been shown to boost your immune system by increasing white blood cell counts (this means you can fight off infections better).
Australian Seafood Platter
This dish is a must for seafood lovers. The platter includes prawns, mussels, oysters and calamari. It can be served with a variety of sauces including lemon wedges and tartare sauce or even be served with different side dishes such as chips or salad depending on your preference. The seafood platter also has salmon which makes it perfect for those who love fish but don’t like seafood!
Grilled snapper fillet with lemon and coriander butter
Snapper is a popular fish in Australia. It’s easy to grill, and goes well with lemon and coriander butter. The combination of lemon juice, cilantro and garlic makes for an amazing flavor on your snapper fillet!
Chicken schnitzel with bacon, leek and mushroom cream sauce
Schnitzel is a breaded and fried cutlet, usually made from veal, chicken or turkey. It’s a popular dish in Australian cuisine and can be served with salad or chips.
You’ll find schnitzel on the menu at most pubs and restaurants across Australia. If you’re ordering it for lunch with friends, why not try this delicious recipe?

- The barramundi is a type of saltwater fish that belongs to the sea bass family. It is native to Australia, but it can also be found in other parts of Asia and Africa. This fish has many different names depending on where you live: it’s known as “sea perch” in South Africa; “black emperor” or “black emperorfish” throughout Asia; and “silver perch” in New Zealand. In addition to these names, there are several others used by various indigenous people groups living along Australia’s coastline.
The largest individuals reach lengths up to 1 meter long (3 feet). However, most specimens are much smaller than this–about half as large!
