It’s easy to make duck taste like crap. Its a dense gamey meat. My favorite recipes each took some practice to get right. I nailed these kebobs on the first try. They’re easy to make and taste great.
Start with 3 or 4 mallard breasts soaked overnight in milk and salt.
Slice the meat into chunks about 3-4 inches long. Each breast yields three or four strips.
Place the duck strips into a gallon sized ziplock bag and pound with a hammer until they’re all the same thickness. Put enough teriyaki sauce to cover the meat and marinate 8-12 hours.
Slice green pepper, yellow and orange bell peppers, red onion and big chunks of cored pineapple. Thread the meat onto skews alternating between peppers, onion and pineapple. I use two skews for each kebob to make them easier to turn on the grill.
If you use wooden skews soak them in the sink for 20+ minutes to keep the ends from burning up and falling apart over the fire.
Place on a hot grill between 325-350 degrees. Cook 6 minutes on one side. Flip. Cook 3-4 minutes on the other side.
Serve with jasmine rice, asparagus and a little soy sauce. Enjoy.
looks good- the pineapple gives it a nice touch.
Grilled pineapple is pretty damn good anytime. Thanks for the comment.
Great recipe. We’ve done goose and venison kebobs. The fruit is a solid addition.
Goose is a good idea. I just happen to have a few bags of goose meat in the freezer. That might be dinner this week….
