Shannon Bennett: Venison carpaccio with pickled vegetables


You'll need

½ cup (loosely packed) each flat-leaf parsley and chives, finely chopped 1½ tsp salted capers, rinsed, finely chopped ¼ anchovy fillet, finely chopped ¼ garlic clove, finely chopped Finely grated rind of ¼ lemon 380 gm venison loin, trimmed, sinew removed 75 ml extra-virgin olive oil To serve: dill sprigs and coriander shoots (microcress)   Pickled vegetables 350 ml Champagne vinegar 2 tbsp caster sugar 2 tbsp sea salt 50 gm each broccoli and cauliflower florets 12 heirloom baby carrots, trimmed, cut lengthways into quarters 5 radishes, cut into quarters

Method

  • 01
  • Combine herbs, capers, anchovy, garlic and lemon rind in a small bowl, coat venison in herb mixture, patting to cover thoroughly, season to taste. Wrap in a double layer of plastic wrap (fold in sides halfway through rolling to seal ends), then in another double layer, to create a cylinder. Place venison in a saucepan of simmering water and cook until rare (8 minutes). Remove and cool in iced water (10-15 minutes), then refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for pickled vegetables, place vegetables in a heatproof bowl. Bring vinegar, sugar and salt to the boil in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar, pour over vegetables, cover with plastic wrap and set aside to cool (30 minutes).
  • 03
  • Thinly slice venison with a sharp knife and arrange on serving plates, divide vegetables between plates, spoon over a little pickling liquid and drizzle with olive oil, scatter with dill and microcress, season to taste and serve.
This recipe is from the April 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
