Squirrel Paté
« on: July 09, 2012, 01:03:34 PM »
Here's something that's a bit different, Squigger Paté.

It's a Rosie Barham recipe, from the Summer 2012 edition of Airgun World, and it sounds so yummy, that I felt it just had to be shared with the whole of the Planet.


1 very finely minced squirrel

Some whole spring onions (minced or very finely chopped) including the green stalks/leaves

A handful of hazelnuts

2 tablespoons of Cognac

1 whisked egg

2oz butter

1 teaspoon of nutmeg

Thyme, fresh or dried

4 sage or bay leaves

Dollop of créme fraíche

Salt and pepper


Pass the squirrel through a coarse mincer/grinder, and then again using the fine attachment. You can put the hazelnuts and spring onions through too, to created a smoother paté, or simply finely chop them for a more textured result.

Add the mixture into a large bowl and add all the other ingredients except the sage/bay leaves. Mix as thoroughly as you possibly can, to create a really smooth paste.

Spoon the mixture into several small bowls, or one large dish if you prefer.

Place a sage/bay leaf on top of each one and brush with a little oil.

Place filled containers into a roasting tin or ovenproof dish which is half full with hot water.

Cook in a medium oven (around 170 degrees) for about an hour.

Serve with toast or crackers, and your favourite relish or pickle.

Sounds fantastic but I've got no bushy tailed rats near me. :(
