The earthy flavours of pigeon work well with something sweet and what better combination than to cook with fig and salted caramel almond?

Ingredients

6 pigeon breasts from Shellseekers Fish & Game

Salt and pepper

100g salted almonds from Arabica Food & Spice Company

1 tablespoon sugar

3 figs from Turnips

Glug of balsamic vinegar

2 bunches of rocket

Preparation Method

Melt the sugar in a frying pan on a medium heat. When light brown liquid caramel add the almonds and toss briefly. Set the nuts aside to cool.

Season the pigeon breasts with salt and pepper. Get a non-stick pan very hot and add olive oil. Sear the pigeon breasts and cook until medium rare- about 2 minutes each side. Set aside. Allow the pan to cool slightly and deglaze with a knob of butter and a glug of Balsamic. Set aside.

Arrange the rocket on a serving plate, garnish with quartered figs and almonds. Slice the pigeon breast into 3 pieces, arrange on salad and pour over the balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.
