* 1 pheasant, divided into 2 legs and 2 breasts
* 1 Celeriac, peeled and quartered.
* 1 tbsp plain flour
* 600g parsnips, peeled and halved
* Spring onions finely chopped
* 1 large egg
* 3 shallots finely sliced
* 250ml of sweet dry cider
You may also want to watch:
* 2 crushed garlic cloves
* 3 tbsp of soured cream
* Knob of butter
* 5 tbsp olive oil
* 150g of chopped parsley
1) Cook the celeriac and parsnip in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes, then drain, pat dry and allow to cool. Grate the parsnip and celeriac into a bowl, then mix in spring onions, flour and egg. Season with salt and pepper.
2) Add 2 tbsp of the oil to frying pan on low heat. Season the pheasant pieces, add to the pan with the shallots, then cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through – you may need to cook the leg pieces for a few minutes longer. Add chopped garlic and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the pan, set aside to keep warm on a warm plate, covered loosely with foil.
3) Heat a little of the remaining oil in a clean pan and fry spoonfuls of the rösti mixture over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes, turning halfway, until golden brown and crisp, adding more oil when needed. Place on a plate lined with kitchen paper and sprinkle with sea salt.
4) Lastly begin to work on the sauce by adding cider to the pheasant pan and bubble over a medium-high heat until reduced by half, stirring to deglaze the pan. Stir in the knobs of butter, soured cream and chopped parsley. Serve with the pheasant pieces and the rösti.
