Venison Rack with Springtime Pea Purée

INGREDIENTS (serves 2):

1 rack of venison (or lamb works as well)

1 tsp of sunflower oil for frying

1 tbsp of olive oil for the pea purée

9 oz frozen peas

4 oz crème fraîche

A sprig of mint (about 5 leaves the size of your thumbnail)

METHOD:

1.  Fry the rack in a very hot oiled skillet to form a nice crispy crust on the meat and fat

2. Finish the rack in a medium heat oven for 15 minutes then rest the rack in a warm place for 10 minutes

3. For the pea purée, de frost frozen peas in boiling water

4. Strain and blitz the peas in a blender with a sprig of fresh mint, a pinch of salt, and a dash of olive oil

5. Heat the pea paste, take it off the heat – stir in an equal amount of crème fresh and serve

For a bonus, serve with sautéed mushrooms. We love morels for this dish!
