2 un lamb’s lettuce
4 un green pistachios
50 g beer paste for frying
0.250 g olive oil
0, 050 g button boletus
Clean the venison loin of fibres and tendons, put onto a tray and leave covered in the room.
Put all the peppers into a mortar, crush, cut the bay leaf very fine, the thyme leaves and mix with the peppers.
Take out the venison loin, spread with the truffle oil and soak with the mixture of peppers and the aromatic herbs, cover in film wrap and stick into the freezer, let it sit there for a few days so that all the aromas soak in well.
Place the olive oil with the pine nuts into a saucepan, fry a little, strain, put the pine nuts into a mortar and mash, add oil bit by bit until you get a liquid pomade. Set aside
For the beer paste.
Put some pieces of ice into a pan, put into ¼ of blond beer, a little salt and add flour passed through a sieve so that it picks up air, mix a little with your fingers and let it rest before using it, leave at a looser texture.
Put a pan on heat with half a litre of olive oil at 180º
Wet the flowers in the paste a little, turn a little so that the petals open and put into the oil, give a strong shake and take out when you see that the paste is fried and the petals are crunchy, put them onto absorbent paper and keep in a warm place.
Cut the frozen venison loin into short pieces, and put them on a presentation plate, place on top the fried flowers, arugula leaves, cut green pistachios, pine nuts, lamb’s lettuce, cut the boletus, sauté and add Maldon salt and finish with the pine nut oil.
