Thumbs up Duck That's Edible!

The average Joe usually thinks duck is nasty. However, if prepared and cooked right it can be fantastic. I start out by letting deboned breast soak in warm salt water for about 30 minutes. Repeat this process again then wash well and pat dry. Season with fresh cracked black pepper and uncle chris' steak seasoning. Sear in cast iron skillet on high for about 1 minute on each side. Serve over brown rice and vegtables and I think you'll be surprised. The key to duck is DON'T over cook it.

Ahhh yes, the old, "You haven't had it cooked right".

I like duck in various ways to cook it. It does however have a different flavor from what most people consider normal food. I suspect that for those folks that don't like it, the only way they will eat it is if you disguise it enough that the real duck flavor will not come through. Maybe something no one has ever heard of like slicing it thin and putting on a piece of jalapeno pepper, some cheese and then wrapping it in bacon.

To me, the seared duck looks great. I think that I will go thaw some from my freezer......

Not real sure about the brown rice though.

The last time I had duck, my wife gave me a nasty look, and since I ain't had no more duck, I dont get no more nasty looks. I must admit however, that does look good !

Default Duck That's Edible!

Great topic!! I started duck hunting this year and have really enjoyed myself. I even involved my two sons in the game. It's gonna be a long year waiting for the next season..

Most people i've talked to either do the bacon wrapped with cream cheese deal or even duck sausage.. I have yet to ample any of these. I've had curry duck at a Thai restaurant this week but no home cooked !!

I have a few Vietnamese friends that have expanded on Duck recipes!! I'll be trying a few over the next few weeks and will post a few pictures.

John, bring those teal over and I'll throw in some redhead. We'll figure out a good dish or just put bbq sauce on a hay bail and eat that instead

I'll pass on what a chef buddy taught me. Try if you want. Breast the duck but make sure and leave the skin and fat on the breast. Soak in Mango juice for 2 hours. Coat in olive oil. Season with cracked pepper and sea salt. Heat your cast iron to 600. Sear on each side for 90 seconds or so. It's fantastic. A simple dip for it is 3 Tablespoons of sour cream. 1 teaspoon horseradish and some salt and pepper. Mix and chill I love duck Just don't over cook. The citric marinade tenderizes and sweetens.

My cousin introduced me to the bacon wrapped duck last year. He soaks in teriyaki sauce for 24 hours. Then wraps them does a slice of jalapeno, onion, cream cheese and wrapped in bacon.

I might have to try this the next time I get some duck.

There are many ways to enjoy duck.

One tip that helps when you are breasting out birds (especially mallards, gadwall, etc.) is to butterfly the breasts. This will help in getting more of the blood out during the soaking process. If you're going to grill them (bacon wrapped) throw a sliver of cream cheese in the butterfly cut. You won't taste the cheese as it will cook out but it will keep the inside nice and moist.

My favorite way is to breast the bird, take a large Woden spoon and beat the hell out of it season to taste then throw the duck away and bake spoon on 350 for 10 minutes.

Ive had good duck at thai, vietnamese, and chinese restaurants. They know how to properly cook the bird. The french do too.

I have never had it wrapped in bacon or cream cheese, but then i rarely do that with dove.

If you want to grill it marinate in olive oil and brown sugar over night then wrap in bacon and grill. If you want it deep fried then marinate it in eagle brand milk and a dark beer overnight and then batter and fry. Both recipes take the game out and are rally good.

Duck can be delicious but it takes more effort and bacon grease than I'm willing to deal with on a regular basis.

I always ate it growing up. Don't duck hunt, so I don't have to worry about it anymore.
