Recipe: Indian Duck with Cilantro Sauce
This is a recipe that I adapted from a Real Simple magazine recipe I've been using on steak for years.
First I started by soaking the duck breasts in buttermilk for about 1 1/2 hours. Then I put a dry rub and smoked the duck breasts over mesquite wood for about 1 1/2 hours.
Then I followed this recipe:
Indian-Style Duck Kebabs with Cilantro Sauce
1 bunch fresh cilantro (about 2 cups cilantro leaves)
1 small onion, peeled
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 small green chili pepper, trimmed and halved, with seeds
1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
10 Duck Breasts, left bone in
1 medium red onion, peeled
1 cup mango chutney
4 pieces naan bread (optional)
Place the cilantro, small onion, garlic, chili, ginger, and salt with 3 tablespoons of the oil in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until a paste is formed. Transfer to a large bowl. Put 2 tablespoons of the paste in a small bowl and stir in the lime juice to make the cilantro sauce. Cover and set aside. Stir the curry powder into the rest of the paste. Add the duck and coat well. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. Cut the red onion into 6 wedges and separate each wedge into 2 layers. Thread the duck breasts and onion chunks onto eight 9-inch skewers. Brush a grill pan with the remaining oil. Preheat grill pan, then grill the kebabs for 8 to 10 minutes, turning the skewers every 2 minutes. Serve with the cilantro sauce, chutney, and naan, if desired.
This recipe was so good.....I can't wait to shoot more ducks.
So, you smoked then grilled or did you just use the cilantro chutney on the smoked birds?
