The good thing about sportsmen is we tend to take care of each other and are normally willing to share. So I traded some rockfish I caught last trip out to a coworker who is an avid hunter. I got nine beautiful birds to try out. I breasted all but two of them to see how they were whole.
The dark meat was tender and very moist looking. I used a fillet knife to remove the meat from the thick breast plate leaving me small tear drop shaped medallions.
A side of red beans and rice and sauteed brussel sprouts completed the dish. I really enjoyed it. My wife thought it had a liver taste and texture, but said she's eat it again. Hopefully next year I will be in a position to start hunting, and then I can get my own birds.
