Method

Remove Silver Fern Farms Venison Mince from the fridge and packaging and allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins

In a bowl, combine the Venison Mince, breadcrumbs, parsley, garlic, apple, and egg. Mix thoroughly.

Roll 2 Tbsp lots of mixture into balls in your hands. Brush meatballs with oil and roll in combined sumac, sesame seeds, and thyme mixture. Gently pan-fry until lightly browned and cooked through.

In a bowl, combine yoghurt, cucumber, garlic, mint, and lemon juice to make the tzatziki sauce.

Top the meatballs with tzatziki. Serve with green salad and your choice of either tabbouleh or toasted pita bread.
