How to cook it

Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced) and line a baking tray with baking paper.

For anchovy butter, beat butter in food processor until light and fluffy. Add anchovy, juice and sea salt and blitz until well combined. Shape into a log, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in fridge for 2 hours.

For salad, place half the oil, beetroot, carrots and garlic together on a roasting tray, mixing until well coated. Place in preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes or until beetroot is tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Meanwhile, cook lentils according to pack instructions. Drain.

For dressing, combine peeled roasted garlic, remaining olive oil, vinegar, salt & pepper together in a screw top jar, shaking until well combined.

Heat oil in large non-stick frying pan. Season kangaroo with salt and pepper, brown meat on all sides. Transfer kangaroo to prepared baking tray and cook in preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, depending on its thickness. Remove from oven and rest for 10 minutes.

To make salad, toss together roasted vegetables, cooked lentils, walnuts, parsley and dressing, until well combined. Top with sliced kangaroo and a small round of anchovy butter.

Useful tip:

Left over anchovy butter can cut into portions, wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen.
