How to prepare :

Peel the whole shallots, place them on some aluminium foil, season with salt and pepper and pour over a little of the dressing. Fold the parcel closed and roast in a pre-heated oven at 170 degrees for 20 minutes. Peel and thinly slice the mango. For the stuffing: Peel and halve the shallot and chop finely. Finely chop the garlic. Loosen the skin on the guinea fowl. Mix the finely chopped garlic, shallot, tandoori spices and grated lime peel together. Stuff a portion of this mixture underneath the loosened skin on the guinea fowl breasts. Pat down the skin. Season the meat on both sides with salt and pepper. Fry both sides of the meat in a little olive oil. Place the meat into a pre-heated oven at 100 degrees to cook further for 12 minutes. Then allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes at 50 degrees. Remove the roast shallots from the aluminium foil parcels and halve them. Mix the shallots through the lamb's lettuce. Carve the meat into slices and arrange this with the mango slices on the salad. Finally add the dressing.
