Alex *Hearts* Bank Holidays

Morning Marinade

Ahh, another May bank holiday weekend.  The weather – average at best.  Chance of a barbecue? Slim to none – far too risky.

The antidote to all of this, is in our opinion: hearts.  Lamb hearts, ox hearts, or whatever kind of meat you like.  We love offal though, as its lean and nutritious nose to tail eating.  And a great salute to the animal – to eat its heart.   (But if you haven’t crossed the offaly bridge, this is a superb all-day meat marinade.)

Alex is pottering away in the kitchen now.  He was in there for hours this morning – making organic chicken freezer cube thingys for Tresillian, reducing some chicken stock to a heady and honey-like consistency.

I’ve been playing games with Tresillian since 5:30 am, so enough of my ramblings and on with the recipe so I can go on and take a bloody nap.

Morning Marinade

Finely mince 3-4 cloves of garlic
Zest 1-2 unwaxed lemons
Chop a few needles of fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon lightly toasted ground fennel seeds
2 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
Glug of olive oil
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper.
NO SALT (salt only seconds before cooking or the meat will sweat)

Mix in your sliced hearts or other meat (if you must.)

Use this marinade with any steak meat, lamb, venison, chicken, even a robust fish such as monkfish.

ALWAYS buy organic meats and wild organic fish.

Love to you all!!
La Libertini
