Thank you to Great Glen Charcuterie for providing this fantastic grouse starter
Small loaf of sourdough bread
Soft goat cheese or curd
Smoked grouse breasts thinly sliced
Rocket leaves 50g hazelnuts
Handful of brambles
2 tbsp orange juice
Rapeseed or olive oil
Salt and pepper
Slice the bread in even slices and grill on both sides for a nice crust.
Toast the hazelnuts briefly and crush into small pieces.
Bring the brambles slowly to the boil with the orange juice until soft.
Push the mixture through a sieve with the back of a spoon.
Mix the cooled bramble juice with the a few tablespoons of oil and season with a little salt and pepper to make the bramble sauce.
Take a crostini and spread the goats cheese on top, add a few leaves of rocket and top with a couple of slices of grouse breast. Drizzle with bramble sauce and garnish with crushed hazelnuts.
These Smoked Grouse Crostini’s make a nice sharing starter or make them smaller for canapés.
