1 Blitz the juniper berries with the oil in a wet spice grinder or stick blender and set aside. Whisk the balsamic vinegar with the orange juice and zest and the juniper oil (leaving 1 tablespoon for the venison). Set aside.
2 Use a mandolin to finely slice the beets and toss with 2 tablespoons of the dressing in a bowl. Set aside.
3 Rub 1 tablespoon of juniper oil into the venison, heat a large frying pan and sear the meat all over. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
4 Arrange slices of venison on a platter, scatter with the hazelnuts, beets, micro leaves and chives, and drizzle with a little extra dressing.
