A delicacy rich in properties: from Australia, kangaroo fillet
Kangaroo meat is a welcome ingredient for those who do not want to compromise on taste, but still want to eat healthily. Indeed, in Australia, marsupials live in some of the least polluted areas of the world and in complete freedom, free from fences or forced diets.
Kangaroo meat is a red meat that is renowned for its low fat content, is rich in protein, and has a classic game favour. But what is the best way to celebrate this magnificent and unusual ingredient?
Taking on the challenge, our Executive Chef has created an exclusive recipe for you, which is just as healthy as it is delicious.
Kangaroo fillet with balsamic vinegar topping
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 PEOPLE
- 600g whole kangaroo fillet
- Salt and pepper
- Extra virgin olive oil
FOR THE GARNISH
- Thick balsamic vinegar
Season the fillet with salt and pepper, then cook it quickly in a frying pan with a few sprigs of thyme, a drizzle of oil and a little butter. Brown the fillet on a high heat on both sides: the cooking time will naturally depend on the preferences of those eating: for a medium fillet, roughly 8 minutes are required.
Once cooked, leave the meat to rest for a few moments, then scallop the fillet into slices with a thickness of 1cm (or up to 2cm, depending on preference) before plating. As a final touch, garnish the fillets with thick balsamic vinegar before serving.
Kangaroo fillet goes very well with roasted or sautéed potatoes.
THE CHEF’S SECRET
The value of the raw ingredient and simple cooking that celebrates its flavours makes kangaroo fillet a delicious dish in itself. The magic touch is the careful selection of a high-quality balsamic vinegar, which should be dense and sweet to the right extent.
It’s not always easy to find restaurants that offer exotic and unique cuts of meat such as kangaroo fillet. Thanks to the creativity and careful research of our Executive Chef, during your stay at Hotel Tritone you will be able to taste this delicacy too.
