German Venison Salami Serving Suggestions

By 0 0

Salami is normally made from pork or perhaps beef and venison is not a meat most people would associate with this creation. It is however amazing what you can find by browsing a previously unexplored section of your local supermarket, or even better, a previously never visited local market. That is precisely how this German venison and turkey salami came to be discovered in a local Aldi store. The only question remaining after that was how to come up with some simple, tasty but hopefully original serving ideas.

If you wish to taste a new product such as this one before coming up with your own serving ideas or following the suggestions of others, one simple way of doing so is to try a couple of slices served simply with a slice of bread and butter.

Venison Salami and Pork Sausage Tortilla

Mini Spanish tortilla with venison salami and pork cocktail sausages

A tortilla in Spain is a thick, robust omelet (often a couple of inches deep), usually containing potato and onion as well as a number of other potential inclusions. It can be eaten hot or cold and will often be sliced in to wedges like a pizza before it is served. This is a variation of the concept, prepared on a smaller scale.

Frying Sausages

Mini sausages are firstly cooked by frying

Fry six mini cocktail sausages (or two normal sized sausages to be chopped in to three pieces following cooking) in a little oil until cooked, being sure to turn them frequently. The mini sausages only take around five minutes, though larger sausages would of course take longer.

Cooked sausages are drained and cooled

Lift the cooked sausages to a plate covered with kitchen paper to drain. Cover and allow to cool completely.

Eggs

Eggs ready for beating

Break three large eggs in to a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Beat with a fork or ballon whisk just enough to fully combine the whites and yolks.

Eggs and Cilantro

Eggs and cilantro are poured in to frying pan

Stir a teaspoon of freshly chopped cilantro (coriander leaf) in to the beaten eggs. Add a tablespoon or so of vegetable oil to an eight inch diameter, non-stick frying pan and bring it up to a medium heat before pouring in the egg combination.

Salami slices are added to egg base

Cut eight thin slices of venison salami and lay them carefully in to the egg combination at evenly spaced intervals before it has a chance to start setting.

Mini sausages are arranged between salami slices

Lay the cooled sausages in the spaces between the salami slices. Put your broiler (kitchen grill) on to preheat to its maximum setting.

Keep the pan on a medium heat until you can see the egg is almost but not quite set all the way to the top. At that point, coarsely grate/shred some hard cheese over the top.

Place the pan under the heat of the broiler for a minute or so until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Slide the tortilla from the pan to a plate and serve immediately.

Red pepper tapenade and water biscuits

These wafer thin, ultra crispy crackers are called water biscuits and are a big personal favorite. This red pepper tapenade dip was a new one on me but sounded great and proved as tasty as it looked.

Tapenade is firstly spread on crackers

Begin by putting about a teaspoon of the dip on each cracker and carefully spreading it out with the back of the spoon.

Conventional salami is often incorporated in pizzas so this incredibly simple idea takes pizza to the most basic of levels, skipping the tomato sauce and focusing only on the bread base, cheese and topping. If making a grander scale pizza, this venison salami would equally make a great inclusion.

Cheese on Bread

Cheese slices arranged on bread

Take around a one inch thick slice of wholemeal, crusty bread and cover it with slices of hard cheese. This particular cheese is English Red Leicester but anything similar will work in the same way.

Season the simple assembly with a little black pepper and place it under your preheated broiler (kitchen grill) until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

Wash and dry a small cherry tomato. Cut it down through the center in a "+" shape, going only around three-quarters of the way through to the base. Gently tease it open and sit it on top of the slice of salami. Garnish with some chopped cilantro.
