Fried Hazel Grouse, Partridge, Black Grouse

Ingredients:
1 hazel grouse, partridge, black grouse
1-2 tbsp butter

Take prepared hazel grouse, partridge, or black grouse. Salt it, and put it in a pot with melted butter. Fry until caramelized crust forms on all sides evenly. Turn the bird on its back and place into oven for 15-25 minutes ( 35-45 minutes for black grouse). During frying, keep pouring butter over the bird using a spoon. When finished, remove from oven and chop in halves lengthwise. Black grouse is chopped into 4-6 pieces. For garnish, serve fried potatoes, or assorted vegetables, lettuce, red cabbage, marinated fruit and berries.
