    Next day they went to my mates and were cooked quickly on the BBQ.

    Can't tell you what they tasted like .... Mostly because from the time they came off the BBQ until the time I finished cooking the other meats , which was about a nano second, the whole bloody lot was scoffed and I missed out on one.

    Seems everyone else loved the delicious marinated Venison kebabs.

    Didn't think it was worth my while telling them it was Goose Breast.

    They must have been ok because I have been asked to make some more for another up coming event.


    Cheers

    I'll be trying that. Got some people around here that won't eat bird.......little do they know.
    Soaking it for a couple of hours in milk also helps tame the gamey taste.

    If its got feathers, it won't get cooked. Unless of course they're out, and i'm cooking, then we have all sorts of concoctions. All done casserole style, even chicken comes out brown enough to pass for 'abit of old cow'

    I'll often do goose or Swan as casserole. Lucky if the troops don't scrape the bottom of the pot. Add some wine, sauce, whatever you like and diced bacon!

    First swan we cooked tasted a bit fishy which was off-putting. We used standard roast in the oven method. Second time, we used an old (medieval) recipe specifically for swan and it was delicious (not fishy flavour at all).

    @rupert

    Can you post your old medieval Swan recipe?

    First swan I roasted was a similar result to yours.

    Cheers

    Hi Pete, I'd like to give you that recipe but it got left behind in many house shiftings. But I'm sure that a bit of googling would turn it up. Swan was a significant bird for feasts in Merrie England. Cheers.

    a young goose roasted better than lamb lamb can be to tender.
    snitzelled breasts great to ,I don't bother with breadcrumbs and seasoned flour.
    marinade in worstershire sauce salt pepper not to long in the pan down the drooling gullet.
    older birds salami sausages.
    swan the same just cant take to it I'm afraid but it certainly bulks up and adds to the salamis and snarlers.
    since the goose debacle and their ensuing increased paranoia ive not shot enough to smoke but they are bloody good..
