3 dove breasts per person
1-2 stalks fresh celery (it's enough for 2 meals)
1-2 carrots (it's enough for 2 meals)
olive oil (butter if you prefer)
rice (white or brown)
bottle of a nice red wine (merlot/rioja/chianti)
Start the rice ahead of time, because this dish doesn't take much time to prepare.
Pour enough olive oil (or butter) into a frying pan to cover its bottom.
While it's heating, slice each dove breast into three or four slices.
Next, slice the carrot(s) and celery at an angle so that it is more presentable than just chopped.
When the oil is hot enough, add the dove meat.
Whisk the slices around the pan just once before adding a splash of wine to the pan.
Then add the vegetables, letting them cook just long enough to heat-up all the way through.
Prepare a nice bed of rice on each plate, and add the dove meat to the center of the rice, the vegetables on its border.
Alternating celery and carrot adds to the presentation of the dish.
Juice from the pan can be spooned over the whole thing if the rice is too dry.
The rest of the bottle of wine makes a perfect compliments to this meal.
