Many years ago I tried kangaroo for the first time. I loved it. Very similar to steak with a slight gamey taste. But, until recently, I had never tried cooking it myself. In Australia, kangaroo meat is now quite widely available in the supermarket in a variety of cuts. It’s low in fat and high in protein. Tonight I used kangaroo filets to make an all round thumbs up dinner.
Curry Spiced Kangaroo with Savory Coconut Cauliflower Spiked with Lime
based on recipe from MacroMeats
1 1/2 – 2 pounds of kangaroo loin or filet
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons curry powder
3 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
1 onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut (you can run coconut flakes in the food processor to shred it)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 head of cauliflower, grated or finely chopped
Juice of one lime
4 green onions, thinly sliced
Sea salt to taste
Mix together 3 tablespoons of olive oil plus salt and curry powder. Rub all over the outside of the kangaroo loins.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add kangaroo loin and cook until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes.
Let meat rest 5-10 minutes then slice (I left mine whole) and sprinkle sea salt on top.
To make cauliflower, warm 3 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Saute the onion and garlic for 1-2 minutes, then add the shredded coconut. Continue to sauté until the coconut is nicely browned.
I highly recommend this recipe.
