I was looking through various recipes online trying to find a new idea of what to do with my duck meat and was left uninspired. I saw several taco recipes, but they were all asian inspired and I just wasn’t in the mood for that. I thought, why can’t we just make traditional tacos with the duck meat and presto a new standby was born!
I don’t really have a recipe since I didn’t measure anything, but I’ll give you a quick run through. I thawed out the duck breast and soaked in milk for a couple of hours. After a few hours, I poured out the milk and made my marinade. The marinad consisted of olive oil, balsamic vineagar, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Like I said I didn’t measure anything since I’m used to making marinades and just kind of shoot from the hip (sorry). After a few hours in the marinade, the duck breast were ready for the grill. I grilled them at 350-400 F for about 4 minutes on each side. You want to be careful not to overcook the
meat, or it will be tough. After pulling from the grill, let the duck rest for a few minutes before cutting into strips – cut against the grain.To construct the taco, heat some corn tortillas on a flat iron or in a skillet on the stove top for 30 seconds per side. Place the duck strips on the tortillas and add some guacomole and pico. Squeeze a lime wedge over it and enjoy! Add some hot sauce (I like Siracha on these – I know Asian, whatever) or jalepenos to spice it up and pair it with your favorite beer or red wine and enjoy!*I know the picture is kind of blurry, but I didn’t realize that until they were all gone!!
