BBQ Pheasant with Asian Slaw (serves two)
- Game - 4x pheasant thighs
- 4x pheasant legs
- For the marinade - 200g teriyaki sauce
- 15g oyster sauce
- 15g tomato ketchup
- 15g honey
- 20g brown sugar
- For the slaw - 2x large carrots
- 1/4x red cabbage
- 1x large leek
- 20g sesame seeds
- 100g mayonnaise
- 1x lime
- 15g coriander, chopped
- For the garnish - 75g peanuts
- 1x sweetcorn cob
- Mix together the marinade ingredients in a bowl.
- Place the pheasant thighs and legs in the marinade and coat well. Cover with cling film and set aside in the fridge.
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Once hot, arrange the marinated pheasant on a lightly greased roasting tray and cook for 45 minutes, until browned and sticky.
- While the pheasant’s roasting, make the slaw. Cut all the vegetables into thin strips, or roughly grate them if you find it easier, and mix with the mayonnaise and sesame seeds.
- Season the slaw with a touch of salt and lime juice, add the 15g of chopped coriander and mix well.
- Finally, prepare the garnishes. Spread the peanuts evenly on a roasting tray and toast them in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown. Place the corn under a hot grill until it starts to blister then slice into pieces.
- Once the pheasant is ready, start plating up. Place a handful of the Asian slaw in the middle of each plate or board and rest a portion of the pheasant on top. Garnish with a sprinkling of the toasted peanuts and a few sprigs of coriander, finish with the corn and serve.
