Remove venison from packaging and set aside to bloom before cooking. Coat the medallions with 1 tablespoon olive oil and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Season with salt and pepper. Allow the meat to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Heat a grill pan on moderate-high heat. Toss zucchini ribbons in 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear. Remove for grill pan and place zucchini on a plate to cool. To assemble the salad slice tomatoes into rounds and arrange on a platter, season with salt and pepper, scatter with the grilled zucchini and torn mozzarella.

Meanwhile, heat a skillet or frying pan on moderate-high heat. Cook medallions for 2-3 minutes for one side, turn over and drizzle with extra balsamic glaze and cook a further 2-3 minutes.

Remove medallions from pan and rest for 5 minutes covered in foil, then slice across the grain for maximum tenderness.

Assemble the caprese, top salad with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle with fresh basil leaves and extra balsamic glaze (optional). Serve glazed medallions with caprese salad. And fresh baby arugula leaves.
