How to make Peppered Roo Fillet With Choy Sum & Corander Pesto

Rub Kangaroo with small amount of olive oil and crack black pepper and Salt onto sides of each fillet as if making a pepper steak. Cover and set aside.

Chop Coriander and put all other ingredients for the pesto into a blender and pulse until mixed well but still a bit chunky. I have not given measurements as its best to make it to your own taste.

Bring a pot of salted water to the boil, and at the same time heat a fry pan until very hot and ready for the roo. Pan fry the roo for 3.5 mins each side for a nice medium rare fillet. Remove roo from pan and set aside to rest.

While the fillets are resting, place choy sum into boiling water and blanch for about 4 minutes or until a nice bright green colour. Drain and divide among the 4 plates.

Slice the Kangaroo Fillets and arrange on top of the choy sum.

Place a tablespoon of pesto on each plate and garnish with sliced chilli. Serve.
