Wood Duck with Thai Marinade




4 wood ducks plucked and cleaned

1 lemon coarsely chopped

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 tbsp brown sugar

3 cloves garlic, minced fine

1 tsp ground coriander seed

1 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp thyme

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes




Combine all the ingredients except duck in a bowl. Place ducks in bowl with mixture cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge for 3 days. Place the ducks and 1 cup marinade into a roasting bag, seal bag and place in a pan. Bake at 300F for 2 1/2 hrs, or until duck breast meat starts separating from the bone. Remove meat from birds and serve over white rice.

Peppercorn Pan-Broiled Duck Breasts




4 whole duck breasts, skinned

3 tbsp green peppercorns

1 tsp black peppercorns

1/2 tsp coarse salt

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp brandy

1/4 cup beef stock

1 tsp chopped fresh parsley




Place the breasts in between two sheets of plastic wrap and lightly pound out with a meat mallet to 1/2" thick. Place the green and black peppercorns in a zip lock bag and gently crack with the mallet. Combine the cracked peppercorns and salt and press into both sides of cutlets. In a heavy skillet heat the oil to almost smoke hot. Add the cutlets and brown for 1 minute. Turn and brown for 1 1/2 minutes on the other side. Remove cutlets to a warm plate and set aside. Splash the skillet with the vinegar and brandy. Bring to a boil, add the beef stock. Cook the sauce for about 4 minutes and serve over the duck breasts. Top with parsley.
