The Matt Moran meal plan you need this week

Matt Moran is busy in the kitchen with his growing empire of restaurants, but you can replicate some of his best dinners at home.

Try your hand at being Matt Moran for the evening. The Great Australian Bake Off star is known for his love of fresh produce and bringing the finest Australian ingredients to the table. 

If you love quality meals that are full of flavour, dive into cooking one of these hearty, classic dishes for every night of the week.

Monday: Pot-roasted chicken with rice and lentils

This whole roast chook will feed the family - or leave you with plenty of recipes. Pair with your favourite roast veg for a well-rounded Monday-night meal.

Tuesday: Snapper tacos

It's Taco Tuesday and Matt Moran has a fresh and zesty recipe for you. The beer battered snapper will fill you up, but the real hero is the flavourful avocado salsa.

Wednesday: Slow-cooked lamb

This recipe is a popular dish from Matt's famed restaurant, Chiswick. Serve with hummus and a mint salsa for a Mediterranean feel.

Thursday: Gnocchi with roast pumpkin, sage and pecorino

If you're up to the challenge, making this gnocchi from scratch won't leave you disappointed. Like most pasta dishes, it's the simple flavour combinations - in this case, butter and sage - that offer the most exciting returns.

Friday: Tuna steak and salad

If you're spending Friday night indoors - it may as well be with a restaurant-quality meal. If you've always wondered how to cook a tuna steak, follow this recipe.

Saturday: Grilled calamari with lime and chilli dressing

This Thai-inspired seafood dish is light and delicious. Enjoyed alongside a salad, or perhaps as an entree to a good steak, this healthy meal is a great way to treat yourself to the finer things in your own home.

Sunday: Lamb wellington

Try Matt's recipe from The Great Australian Bake Off for a hearty Sunday dinner. The most fiddly part of the recipe is making your own pastry and then arranging it on the dish. This one is definitely for weeking cooking hobbyists.
