    OK - I have only had duck once and I don't remember much about it... just enough to know that I didn't hate it.

    What's an easy first-timer duck dish I can try? I saw Alton do one last night that I may investigate further. It looked good and not too difficult (and didn't require any special equipment).

    Any other easy ideas? I can say that I'd like something that wuld take away any 'gaminess' of the duck.

    TIA--

    soak the skinned breast in cold water in the fridge for about 2 days changing out the water atleast twice a day.



    wrap in bacon, grill and apply bbq sauce toward the end of grilling

    i even ate a small merganser breast this way and it wasnt too bad.

    My wife simply roasts it like a chicken. Love the taste. Remember to remove any inards (various bits that are edible) wrapped in paper inside the body cavity. She also puts pieces of apple (cut up) inside the empty duck. To remove the fat, I think. Mmmmmmmmm

    I really like the recipe Alton did on Good Eats. I've done it several times and it's very good.

    This is the one I gave Jeeps last year on this same site:

    DIRTY DUCK

    Pressure Cook or boil one large duck (salt & pepper duck) with two celery sticks and one medium onion until meat leaves bone. Debone duck and break meat into small pieces. Discard celery and onion, retain duck broth.

    In a small saucepan put:
    1 stick oleo
    1 cup water
    1 cup duck broth (from above)
    3 chicken bouillon cubes

    Bring ingredients to a boil and pour over:
    1 cup rice
    1 bell pepper (chopped)
    1 medium onion (chopped)
    1 small can mushrooms
    1 tsp salt
    dash pepper
    duck meat

    Bake 45 minutes at 375 degrees in a covered pyrex dish.

    Poor ducks. ;T j/k

    I tried duck once during a flight from overseas, it wasn't bad. Seemed like a rather rich tasting meat.

    Season your duck with cajun seasoning or whatever turns you on...then stick it on the rotisserie for 45 minutes to an hour...yum-yum. Injecting a little terriyaki into the breast will help keep it moist.

    Season and grill the duck breasts as you would a steak.

    Grill to Medium Rare / Medium.

    Tastes like a filet mignon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
