Venison medallions with blackcurrant and red onion salsa
( SERVES 4 )
I think this simple salsa works well with venison medallions, but if eating Bambi’s relatives isn’t your thing you could stir it through some spinach leaves and top with creamy nuggets of goat cheese.
For the salsa:
- Put the onion, salt, sugar and vinegar in a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside to steep for 10-15 minutes.
- Add the blackcurrants and oil and stir gently. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then set aside at room temperature until ready to serve.
- Rub the medallions with olive oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. Cook in a heavy pan set over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes each side. Remove to a warm plate, cover loosely and rest for 5 minutes. Arrange the medallions on plates with a spoonful of salsa on the side. Serve with your favourite green vegetables.
