Pigeon breast suggestions please

    Recommended Posts

    Never cooked pigeon before (I know that’s probably a crime for a PW member!)... 

    Anyway I’m looking a simple but great dinner recipe for pigeon breast, especially for the Mrs who can only think ‘feral pigeon’ when I suggest it!!

    looking forwards to suggestions!

    thanks

    You could flash fry them like fillet steak? Whatever and however, don't over cook em!

    The world's your oyster with breasted pigeon. 

    To save typing, Google warm pigeon salad, always good and easy. French bread and a bottle of something goes well. 

    Moroccan pigeon pie is very easy and quite bizarre in flavour with sweet, savoury and spicy all in one. 

    You can make a simple stir fry with it also, black bean sauce works ok. 

    Mince up with pork fat and make burgers. 

    My favourite is fried with bacon lardons and black pudding in a warm salad. The over riding key is DO NOT OVERCOOK IT or it's tough as old boots and about as appealing. You want it pink but not bloody, 2 mins either side in a very hot pan as a maximum, nearer 1.30mins and rested in a warm place.

    Slice pigeon breasts thinly, dip in seasoned flour, fry with strips of peppers and onion.

    Add a good dollop of chilli dipping sauce to the pan and fry for a little longer.

    Take a tortilla wrap and spread with creme fraiche, add a dollop of the pigeon mixture and wrap the tortilla up around it. 

    Simple, quick, delicious and healthy.

    Enjoy.

    My favourite is to place in a bowl with a little oil, thyme and garlic and leave to marinate for a minimum of 30 mins. Then flash fry as suggested above. Serve with a whole grain mustard mash and some Asparagus from the allotment.

    After some debate. This evenings cooking consisted of warm pigeon and beetroot salad, and the making of pigeon sausage rolls... I think I’ve found my new favourite game bird!
