World Heart Day is celebrated across the globe on Thursday, September 29, to remind people to take charge of their heart health. One of the main causes of heart condition Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is eating an unhealthy diet. To help promote a healthy heart, Le Cordon Bleu Melbourne cuisine teacher and chef Mariano Velazquez has created a nourishing kangaroo loin dish with a colourful, spring salad.
“I chose this dish for World Heart Day as kangaroo is a very healthy meat, a truly Australian source of protein, low in fat and easy to prepare,” he says.
“The salad accompaniment is also full of nutrients due to the use of nuts, dried fruits, spices and herbs.”
His number one tip when cooking with kangaroo is to keep it on the rare side to maintain its moisture and tenderness.
“Kangaroo meat is extremely lean and overcooking the loin would result in a dry and tough bite, so be sure to serve it rare.”
