Servings 1


  • baby leaf salad
  • pitta bread
  • 2 chunks local black pudding
  • 2 rashers local streaky bacon
  • 2 fresh pigeon breasts
  • 1 handful pumpkin seeds
  • rapeseed oil


  • Crumble the black pudding into a hot, dry frying pan and once it starts cooking add your bacon. Turn your bacon regularly to allow it to go really crispy and coloured.
  • Once the bacon and black pudding is nice and crispy, add to a bowl with the baby leaf salad. Tear the bacon into little pieces and crumble the black pudding even more.
  • Add pumpkin seeds raw or toasted depending on preference. Set aside
  • Add both your pigeon breasts to the smoking hot pan and cook for roughly a minute and a half each side. Once cooked transfer to a chopping board to rest. Once rested for a few minutes slice on the oblique and toss all ingredients in the bowl. Dress with rapeseed oil.
