Ingredients:

  • 1 litre (4 cups) chicken stock
  • 1 orange, thinly peeled rind only
  • 20 gm (4cm piece or 1.6 oz piece) ginger, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 1 turkey breast (about 1.4kg or 9 oz), skin on
  • 200 ml (7 oz) vino cotto
  • 350 ml (12.3 oz) each baby green beans and sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 8 peaches, cut into wedges
  • 2 bunches baby rocket, trimmed
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chardonnay vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Directions:

  • Combine stock, rind, ginger, garlic, star anise and peppercorns in a large saucepan over medium heat, simmer to infuse (30 minutes). Add turkey, simmer for 20 minutes, then remove from heat and stand in liquid for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat grill to high. Remove turkey from poaching liquid, pat dry with absorbent paper, place on a baking tray, brush with 150ml (5.3 oz) vino cotto, then grill, basting occasionally, until golden (5-7 minutes). Season to taste, cover loosely with foil, set aside to rest (10 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, blanch green beans and sugar snap peas in boiling salted water, then refresh. Drain and combine in a bowl with peaches and rocket.
