Are you bored with Chicken? Try our oven ready Snipe as an indulgently flash treat. Snipe is rich dark red meats that requires a VERY little cooking.
Snipe breast, thighs and legs are awesome!! Just stir fry them in butter or oil.
The key to cooking Snipe is to NEVER GO BEYOND RARE TO MEDIUM RARE.
Yes, snipe and woodcock are very similar in taste. And that means, if you cook them right they are about the best meat there is. If you cook them wrong, you might as well just eat the recoil pad off your gun. Photograph by J J Harrison.
