Method

  1. Give your butcher a bit of notice and I’m sure he’ll have no problem getting hold of a little venison for you. It isn’t that expensive and it’s really tasty.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Toss the shallots in the olive oil, season, and place them in a shallow baking dish with the thyme sprig. Cover tightly with foil and bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until soft.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat a heavy griddle pan that’s large enough to hold the venison comfortably. If your griddle pan is too small, cut the venison into 2 pieces and grill it in 2 batches. Remove all the fat and any sinew from the venison, season well, and brush with olive oil. Place on the hot griddle and sear and brown all over – about 2–3 minutes. Take out of the pan and place on a plate to cool for about 30 minutes.
  4. Mix the horseradish into the crème fraîche. Season it well with salt, pepper and the vinegar.
  5. Thinly slice the venison with a sharp carving knife and lay 3 slices on each plate. Peel some of the warm shallots, tear them in half and lay a piece on top of each piece of venison. Dollop a little horseradish crème fraîche on top and sprinkle the plates with the rosemary and orange zest before serving.
