How to cook it

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter in a food processor until light and fluffy. Add lemon juice, parsley and sea salt and blitz until well combined. Shape into a log, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
  3. Place beetroot, carrots, garlic and olive oil together on a roasting tray, mixing until well coated in oil. Place tray in preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes or until beetroot is tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  4. For the dressing, combine the peeled roasted garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper together in a screw top jar, shaking until well combined.
  5. Heat oil in large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Season kangaroo with salt and pepper, cook for 4-5 minutes on each side for a medium-rare finish, or to your liking and allow to rest.
  6. To make the salad, toss together the roasted vegetables, lentils, walnuts, parsley and dressing, until well combined.
  7. To Serve, place sliced kangaroo over the roasted vegetable salad and top with a small round of herb butter.

Tip: Enhance the flavour or your butter and add 10g anchovy fillets to your butter mixture. Anchovies are the perfect accompaniment to roo.
