Serves 2

1 pack Silver Fern Farms Haumako Hills Venison Steaks

1 tbsp canola oil

1 tbsp butter

½  cup walnuts

2 tbsp ground cumin

2 tbsp ground coriander

3 tbsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted

1 tsp salt

To make the dukkah: Toast walnuts, cool and blitz in food processor. Add cumin coriander and salt. Add lightly toasted sesame seeds and pulse quickly for 3-4 seconds in total.

Remove venison from packaging and allow to bloom. Preheat oven to 200°C. Season steaks with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat oil in a frying pan on high heat. Add butter and when it starts to foam add venison. Sear on all sides, roughly 2 minutes on each. Transfer steaks to the oven for approximately 8 minutes, for medium rare.

Rest in a warm place covered with tin foil for 10-12 minutes. Coat in dukkah spice mix and finish steaks in the oven for 5 minutes.

Slice steaks across the grain and serve with potato and parsnip mash, glazed beetroot and brussels sprouts.
