Venison Cutlets with Barley Salad and Pomegranate Dressing
These Venison Cutlets are lean and tender, trimmed and left on the bone to give a tastier flavour.

1 pack Silver Fern Farms Venison Cutlets

2 tsp olive oil

1 tsp sumac

2 Tbsp very finely chopped parsley

2 Tbsp olive oil

Pomegranate Dressing

¼ cup pomegranate seeds

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp honey

Barley Salad

¼ cup pearl barley, cooked

200g mixed colour tomatoes, chopped

Handful rocket leaves

½ small red onion, sliced thinly

40g feta

Mint leaves to garnish

Remove the Silver Fern Farms Venison Cutlets from the pack and allow to bloom for 10 minutes before cooking. Rub the cutlets with olive oil, sumac, salt and pepper.
Combine parsley and olive oil to make the Parsley Oil. Set aside.

To prepare the dressing, place the pomegranate seeds into a small bowl. Mash with a fork to release some of the juice. Add the lemon juice and honey and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat a frying pan or barbecue over medium to high heat. Cook the cutlets for 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and rest for 5 minutes.

To assemble the salad, place the pearl barley, tomatoes, rocket and red onion into a salad bowl. Drizzle with the Pomegranate Dressing and toss gently. Crumble over the feta and top with mint leaves.

Drizzle Parsley Oil over the cutlets and serve with the salad.
