Tartare of Cabrito Goat with Curry Jam, Goats Yoghurt and Bhaji Scraps
Tartare of Cabrito Goat with Curry Jam, Goats Yoghurt and Bhaji Scraps
30 mins

This dish showcases the fantastic ethical goat meat we get from Cabrito through Foodchain. It has a fantastic depth of flavour that can stand up to the strong flavours that we’ve paired it with here.

The Curry Jam, Curry Oil and Pickles last for weeks and are great store cupboard essentials. They also make a great accompaniment to Goat/Lamb Chops, Roasted Fish, Scallops or Cauliflower.
