    Filet the breasts off a nice fat duck including the plucked skin. Cross hatch just the skin with a sharp knife. Soak in salted water over night. Pat dry and salt and pepper. Cook 1 piece of bacon in a small pan to render the fat over medium low heat.
    Remove bacon. (eat bacon as snack :D) Add duck skin side down. Cook until browned..rendering the duck fat. Turn the duck and continue cooking. In a small bowl have 1 shot Grand Marnier, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1 Tbsp finely sliced Ginger sticks, pinch of cloves, allspice, cinnamon, clove of crushed garlic. As duck nears doneness put all the above over the duck. Watch for flames. Simmer a minute and remove duck to plate. Reduce sauce. As it starts to brown add some butter (about a Tbsp) and red pepper flakes(taste). Simmer until thickened. Then pour over duck.

    You can double, triple recipe, etc..as to # of duck breasts.. Enjoy. Its a A1 recipe for a nice fat puddle duck.

    That looks great. Printed out and put in the recipe book. Now all I have to do is kill a duck.

    Looks great!!! I was suprised when I saw this because I have been experimenting with the SAME THING!

    I do my recipe only slightly different. I marinade the breasts in Orange Marmelade and Grand Marnier. That's it. I do like adding the crushed pepper flakes too. It balances the sweet.:tu

    Coho's recipe here is amazing! One thing I did change though, is that I add brown sugar to sweeten it up and a little cornstarch to thicken it up.

    Wow! I stumbled on this doing a site-wide search for recipes...substituted a half dozen CAGO for duck breasts (and pounded them flat a bit first). Used the crispy bacon afterward in a skillet with some wild rice, onions and shrooms. Perhaps the best waterfowl meal I've ever enjoyed. Daughter and her girlfriend just plowed through two helpings and the friend has never had goose before.

    Great stuff, thanks for the tip!:clap
