Grilled Wild Duck Breast Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)
Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
My husband has recently taken up duck hunting & I've never liked duck before. The way my mom fixed it it always tasted like a mixture of rotting fish & mud. This recipe worked very well to eliminate that taste and I can actually say I enjoy duck now. Even my picky 4 year old liked it. I did do the salty ice water soak suggested in some of the comments.

Amazing!! My husband and I hated duck before this recipe. My daughter (8yr.) loved it as well. We were all fighting over it at the dinner table. I did soak it in ice salt water for an hour, so I don't know if that helped with eliminating the game taste. Thanks!

Excellent recipe. A tip for those who want to eliminate the "wild game" taste as much as possible is to soak the duck breasts in salted ice water for about an hour before using. I suggest about a Tablespoon of salt per quart. Make sure to use ice water as it will draw out blood. Then rinse the breasts thoroughly and quickly pat dry with paper towel before adding to the marinade. This recipe is a keeper!

We used this marinade for both duck and pheasant that we fondued with a group of friends; it was delicous. We served the duck with mint jelly. We had several meats and the duck, believe it or not, was the favorite!

Easy to make and the kids loved it!!!!!Let the meat rest from the grill for a few minutes. Slice it up and serve over a pasta or rice. We will try this again.

This was the first time for duck breast for us, so we thought we'd try an easy marinade. The flavor of the marinade was fine, but our meat still had a little "wild" flavor. Next time, we will soak it a little in brine before we marinate. We also grilled this for about 10-12 minutes on each side and as you can see in the picture, it still came out medium rare. I guess duck is an extremely bloody meat. Thanks for the recipe, RKC. I will try this marinade again.
