This is so wonderful, you’ll be quacking your head off. If you can’t get wild duck, get Maple Leaf Farms Duck.
They produce the best duck around.
4 duck breasts, boned and skin scored in crisscross pattern – if you buy Maple Leaf they do it for you☺
½ cup white wine vinegar
½ cup Port wine
¼ cup almond oil
½ cup agave syrup
1 tablespoon Awesome Antler Rub plus a little extra to shake on before grilling.
Rinse duck in cold water, pat dry and place in a large Ziplock bag, pour the vinegar, agave syrup, port, almond oil and Awesome Antler Rub. Marinate for 4 hours and you can marinate overnight if you wish.
Tart Cherry Compote
1 small jar of tart cherry preserves
1 cup dried Tart Montmorency cherries
1/2 cup port wine
1 teaspoon Yellow Dog Sweet Shake
In a small sauce pan add all ingredients and simmer until port reduces and mixture is sauce-like. Maybe 15 to 20 minutes. Keep warm.
Ready, set, grill.
Heat grill to high and remove duck from marinade. Place on a platter and shake on a little more Awesome Antler Rub. Sear the breasts both sides skin side down first. Reduce heat to medium and grill for 8 to 10 minutes each side.
Remove from grill and serve with Tart Cherry compote over Lotus Foods Forbidden Rice, 1 teaspoon Yellow Dog Sweet Shake with chopped dried tart cherries and toasted pecans.
