Serves: 1 person
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Ready in: 20 mins

Ingredients

Baby leaf salad
Pitta bread
2 chunks local black pudding
2 rashers local streaky bacon
2 fresh pigeon breasts
1 handful pumpkin seeds
rapeseed oil

Instructions

Crumble the black pudding into a hot, dry frying pan and once it starts cooking add your bacon. Turn your bacon regularly to allow it to go really crispy and coloured.

Once the bacon and black pudding is nice and crispy, add to a bowl with the baby leaf salad. Tear the bacon into little pieces and crumble the black pudding even more.

Add pumpkin seeds raw or toasted depending on preference. Set aside

Add both your pigeon breasts to the smoking hot pan and cook for roughly a minute and a half each side. Once cooked transfer to a chopping board to rest. Once rested for a few minutes slice on the oblique and toss all ingredients in the bowl.

Dress with rapeseed oil.
