Ingredients

For the Kiev:
3 pheasant breasts
250g butter
1 bulb garlic
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbs parsley, chopped
Vegetable oil for frying
100g panko breadcrumbs
3 eggs
75g seasoned flour

For the salad:
4 cooked beetroots, each cut into 8 wedges
50g mixed salad

For the dressing:
15ml Olive Oil
15ml White Wine Vinegar
½ tsp Dijon Mustard
2 tbsp Water
Salt and Pepper

Method
  • Heat the vegetable oil to 160c in a deep fat fryer, or if you don’t have one you can use a saucepan halfway full of vegetable oil.
  • Place the garlic bulb into a foil parcel. Drizzle with olive oil and roast for 20 minutes. Allow to time to cool.
  • Meanwhile, take your pheasant breasts and make a small hole in each breast to make a pocket for the filling.
  • In a bowl, mix your oven roasted garlic, butter, olive oil and parsley until combined. Next, spoon into a piping bag.
  • Pipe the butter mix into the hole in the pheasant breast and then fill the hole with the meat initially cut out to form a plug.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs together.
  • Coat the pheasant breast in flour, then brush on the beaten egg solution, then coat with flour again, add a further coating of the egg solution just before covering in the panko breadcrumbs.
  • Place into a deep fat fryer and fry for 4 to 6 minutes until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  • Drain onto kitchen paper and sprinkle with sea salt to finish.

 

To make the Salad
