Gunstar sponsors the Great British Shooting Show 2022
Pheasant is one of the most popular game meats in the UK, largely due to it being a very sustainable species to shoot. Another reason is that it’s an extremely tasty and versatile meat that can be paired with many delicious ingredients. This Scandinavian recipe is packed with rich flavours like honey, lemon and dill to leave a real party in your mouth. Wild and Game recommend you serve your pheasant with roasted new potatoes and plenty of butter or herbs to create a really complete meal...
4x Wild and Game pheasant breast fillets
A big handful of dill, chopped
500ml chicken stock
1 onion, diced
4 tbsp creme fraiche (French if possible, because it won’t split)
1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp cornflour
A glug or two of olive oil
To serve: New potatoes
Heat the olive oil and fry the onion in it until soft.
Add the pheasant and cook until the meat has whitened on the outside.

Cook for 20 minutes with the lid off.
