    From Xdsscoutswife:


    Vickie’s Smoked Duck with Wild Rice
    1 lb bacon
    1 cup cilantro coarsely chopped.
    1-2 garlic cloves finely chopped
    1 medium-large sized red onion diced
    4 large duck breasts diced into small cubes (make sure they are small cubes as that helps with searing and with soaking up the spices)
    1/2 to 1 tsp liquid smoke
    1/4 cup good quality grated Parmesan cheese. (Better quality makes all the difference)
    1/2 (may need more to taste) tsp good quality garlic powder
    salt and pepper to taste

    You can use any brand of your favorite wild rice for this dish.

    Combine Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Sprinkle over diced duck until all meat is coated and set aside or in the refrigerator until needed (remember that the longer you let it sit the more flavor the meat will soak up, I try to let it sit a couple of hours before starting).

    Cut bacon into small strips and crisp in large skillet. Once bacon is crispy have the duck ready. Push all the bacon to one side of the pan. Tip pan to the side so that all the bacon grease forms a puddle on the opposite side. Make sure this grease is really hot (burner set between medium and high, this will sear the duck and give it a steak like texture). Slowly add the duck to the grease (make sure you keep the pan tipped) The meat is usually cooked within two to three minutes…make sure you keep it moving in the grease so as not to burn it. Lower the flame to medium and set the pan flat again. Make sure you taste your duck and add salt and pepper to your liking. Add cloves of garlic, onion, liquid smoke and cilantro and saut? for 2-3 minutes. Drain any excess grease and serve over you favorite wild rice.

    It is delicious!!! Enjoy!!!
