Iceland has started selling a range of exotic meats and we thought we’d try some burgers out on the barbecue. We served them with potato salad and green leaves.
These have a fairly beefy flavour, but they are leaner and have a dry texture. We didn’t think they were particularly distinctive.
We paired the ostrich burgers with Lascar Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, a Chilean red from the Wine Society.
A much lighter-coloured meat. Moist, slightly salty with a distinctive unique flavour. These were much better and we would buy them again.
These burgers needed a white wine and we opened a bottle of Brancott Marlborough Chardonnay 2013, a New Zealand white from Costco.
We plan to try the kangaroo burgers and wild boar sausages next.
