Pigeon Breast

This is my absolute favourite way to eat them, quick touch of a hot pan, a splash of port and the plonked on a pile of new potatoes sautéed with chorizo and black pudding - food of the gods!

Thanks all.  I don’t get the chance to get many woodies here so I do really enjoy them when I get a couple.

@mel b3- I could have eaten double but I’m trying to shift some timber.

@old’un - Dave I poured the reduced port over which is a lovely sauce, but being a food porn photo tart I didn’t want anyone thinking they were leaching blood - you’ve caught me out good and proper !!!

I should have known there was a pot of sauce lurking off picture, hope it all went down nicely.

There might be a lack of pigeons near you but I am hoping to see a rabbit on the plate come autumn/winter. :good:

Juniper berries make a wonderful addition to the sauces for pigeon.

Some years back we went for a meal at the Fox Inn near Kinver, I had venison with shiitake mushrooms and mixed veg, it came with a small jug of sauce, it was the best sauce I have ever tasted, I could have drunk it on its own, wish I had asked the chief what was in it and how it was made.

Could easily have been juniper with any game.  They are easy to get in a jar from a supermarket e.g.  https://groceries.asda.com/product/spices/schwartz-juniper-berries/394872

Juniper is the main flavour used in the standard 'big label' gins like Gordon's.  There are LOTS of on line recipes for juniper sauces/gravies.
