Pigeon is quick and easy to cook. It makes a fantastic Sunday roast made all the more special by everyone having their own bird. Pigeon should be served slightly pink and allowed to rest for at least 5 minutes before eating.

To roast an Oven Ready Pigeon:

Preheat oven to 180c / Gas mark 4

Heat a heavy frying pan and sear the pigeon either side until golden brown. This will seal the meat and help to stop it drying out.

Place the Pigeon in a roasting dish and put into the preheated oven. Roast the Pigeon for 8 - 10 minutes for slightly pink and a further 2 - 4 minutes for well done. Keep basting the bird during the cooking time. The juices should run clear when the bird is cooked. It is important not to over cook the Pigeon otherwise it will become tough. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Use the juices to make a deep rich gravy or fruit sauce such as Blueberry or Blackberry. Serve with red cabbage , seasonal vegetables and roast potatoes.
