Have you ever tried Pheasant? Lately we have been enjoying it pretty often & I am grateful for that!
This recipe is simple & brings out the delicate flavors of this stunning bird. What could be better than a butter rub with citrus & rosemary?
Not only did I acquire some fine Pheasant on a recent hunting trip ~ I was also sent a lovely surprise from MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc.
Pheasants are stunning game birds. The males being especially beautiful, adorned with bright colors and markings.
The bird on the top is a pheasant ~ look at those vibrant colors! The guy on the bottom is a Chukar Partridge.
Try my recipe for Mandarin Roasted Rainbow Carrots with this citrus Pheasant…they go real well together.
These pretty feathers are from the Pheasent hen that Bob the dog caught for me….
This would be a great meal for Easter or bookmark for Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts.
