This is a great duck breast recipe that has as a "steaky" flavor if prepared correctly. It has been a hit with lots of friends who've never even tried duck.
Time: 1 hrs and 20 mins • Prep Time: 1 hrs and 10 mins • Cook Time: 10 min
Serving Size: Makes 8 half breasts
8 duck breast halves (skinned and boned)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp of olive oil
1/2 tsp of your favorite hot sauce
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. of black pepper
- Mix together the Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, hot sauce, garlic, and pepper.
- Add the duck breasts to the bowl and toss them well to coat with the sauce mixture.
- Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour to overnight.
- Preheat a grill for medium-high heat.
- Wipe down the grill grate with olive oil prior to placing the breasts on it.
- Grill the duck to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium, depending on the size of the breast, and the temperature of your grill.
To eliminate the "gamey" taste that wild duck can have, try soaking the duck breasts in ice water for about an hour before using them. You can use 1 tbsp. of salt for each quart of water. After soaking in the salted ice water, rinse them of and pat dry before adding to the marinade.
Make sure you don't overcook. Duck breast should be cooked medium to medium rare to further avoid a gamey taste.
