Domestic duck in itself is an acquired taste, so I really wanted this fresh game to be delicious! I researched and discussed many ways to prepare it, and finally settled on kebobs.
These would be simply delicious grilled, but it was 20 degrees and our charcoal just did not want to cooperate! So, I put them in the oven at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes on a broiler pan.
While the kebobs were cooking, I took a small jar of pineapple-apricot preserves that I found in our pantry and melted the preserves with 4 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce on medium-low on the stovetop. I also added a little of the pineapple juice left from the chunks I had layered on the kebobs.
When the kebobs had been cooking about 15 minutes, I removed them from the oven and brushed them well with the preserve mixture, keeping a little back to use when they were completely finished cooking.
Brushing the cooked kebobs with a little more pineapple preserves, I served them with rice and a salad with ginger dressing.
Overall this was a super-easy meal to prepared. The prep time of chopping veggies and duck was longer than the cooking time.
Do you enjoy wild game? How do you prepare it?
