    Pheasant Pizza

    I can't take credit for developing this recipe, but it is a favorite of my family. The picture, however, is mine.

    You can easily substitute chukar, quail or grouse for the pheasant. You can even you chicken if you are of a more domestic bent.

    I use an entire bird when make this recipe — i.e. one whole pheasant does quite nicely. I just dice it up, brown it and set it aside before starting the rest. I roast the peppers before beginning the sauce as well, and usually open a bottle of wine as the very first step. I use a bit more onion and quite a bit more of the garlic, cheeses and capers.

    1 12-inch pizza crust
    1 small onion, thinly sliced
    1-1/2 cups cooked pheasant, cut up
    *1 medium red pepper, roasted seeded and cut into strips
    1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
    1 tablespoon capers, drained

    Sauce:
    1 tablespoon butter
    1/4 cup finely chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup milk
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    1/4 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon granules
    1/3 cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

    Heat oven to 425°F. In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add Chopped onion and the garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until onion is tender, stirring frequently. Stir in flour and white pepper. Blend in milk and bouillon Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until sauce is thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add Parmesan cheese. Stir until melted.

    Place crust on pizza pan, pizza stone or baking sheet. Spread sauce to within 1 inch of edgge. Top sauce evenly with sliced onion, pheasant pieces, red pepper and cheese. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Sprinkle with capers.

    *To roast pepper, place it under broiler with surface 4 inches from heat. Roast until skin is blackened and blistered, turning pepper frequently. Place pepper in closed paper or plastic bag for 10 minutes. Peel and discard skin from pepper; prepare as directed.

    Blue Marlin steaks on the grill.

    First time you have them, don't do anything to them beforehand.
    I grill over charcoal, not gas. Rub some olive oil on the grill grate and set the Blue Marlin steaks on there. The nice thing about Blue Marlin is that it has this thin layer of pink flesh on the outside. You can use that as a visual progress meter because as it cooks it turns white like the rest of the flesh. When it's white about halfway up, time to flip them. When that whole band of pink has turned white it's time to eat them! :)

    If your fire is a little hotter this time than it was last time or a little cooler than it was last time, you just watch that pink flesh turn white and you know exactly when to flip them and exactly when their done.

    After you know what they taste like au naturale, you can sprinkle some mesquite on the coals while they are cooking. Or.... interestingly.... try some hickory. Or try brushing with butter and lemon if you're more traditional :)

    Either way, it's tough to over cook tehm or under cook them if you just watch and let THEM tell you when they're done.

    yum

    MAJOR props to msmith for this recipe...

    Used it to marinade a 1.64 lb. top round london broil before my wife's nephew's little league game....after the game it hit the grill over some smoking oak wood chips (to compliment the charred oak flavor of the bourbon).

    Indeed a unique flavor, and one definitely worth trying!

    My family thanks you for this contribution to the dinner table.

    (dialogue over the dinner table...

    wife: This is really good, where did you get this idea?

    me: Some guy I banter with on SatGuys about HDTV.

    wife: Oh. (silence) Maybe you can start a conversation on Recipezaar.com about how to get GalleryHD back... ) :eek:

    Thanks again!:up
