The good thing is, I now know how to get over my hangovers - more sleep, tea, and spicy food. So cue a proper fusion evening - because Saturday was also designated pheasant eating night! I did some research, found out that there were some Asian pheasant recipes out there, so decided on crispy pheasant with plum sauce. Being slightly dubious of our pheasant butchering skills, I brined the bird in salt and sugar water, citrus fruits and spices, before roasting it. The end result was pretty good - moist breasts, fairly crispy skin, served up with pancakes, homemade plum sauce, duck spring rolls (bought in case the pheasant didn't work - and we ate them anyway!) and a super spicy cucumber and cashew salad. All in, I was pleased!
