  • pepper
  • 75g of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 75g of Panko breadcrumbs

To make the dressing, whisk together all of the ingredients in a bowl and set aside. The flavour and intensity of the lavender will develop over time, so leave to infuse for a stronger flavour

  • 50g of white wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch of dried lavender buds
  • 50g of Dijon mustard
  • 150g of rapeseed oil

To cook the turkey, add enough oil to come 1cm up the side of a large frying pan and place over a medium heat. Once hot, gently lower in the turkey escalopes and adjust the heat so it is browning evenly. After 2-3 minutes, turn over and cook to achieve an even golden colour all over
