Venison tartare, umeboshi mayo, gherkin, shallot, quail egg yolk

Not yet rated

Anna Hansen's venison tartare recipe is laced with a range of beguiling flavours, from umeboshi (a pickled Japanese plum) to yuzu juice, which has a tart and refreshing citrus flavour - which are the perfect complements to the richly flavoured venison loin. Crispbreads make the ideal vessel for the tartare, as the hole in the middle creates a divet for the egg yolk to sit in.

Venison tartare

To serve


Check the venison to ensure all of the sinew has been removed. Using a sharp knife, cut the flesh into small 1/2cm cubes. If preparing the meat in advance, set aside in the fridge until required
Combine the capers, diced anchovy fillets, umeboshi, shallots and gherkins in a bowl, and mix through the chopped venison. Add the Worcestershire sauce, chilli, yuzu juice and mayonnaise and mix well until thoroughly combined. Season to taste
To serve, place a crispbread on each plate and divide the tartare between the crispbreads. Create a small indentation in the centre of each mound of tartare and place an egg yolk in the middle
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 medium crispbread, preferably Peter’s Yard 135mm with hole
Sprinkle generously with chopped parsley and celery leaves to garnish, and add a pinch of chilli flakes before serving

Whether you call it 'fusion', 'global' or 'basically indescribable' is beside the point; Anna Hansen's food is without a doubt fresh and adventurous - you might even call it modern.
