Duck blind snacks made with duck....a new one...

Postby Indaswamp » Mon Jul 30, 2012 7:46 pm

Everyone knows about Duck Poppers...a.k.a. duck kabobs. Here is an interesting idea I'm looking forward to trying this season:

Orange Marmalade Glazed Duck legs and thighs

Duck Prep for grill
Duck legs and thighs from 10-12 ducks, cleaned and rinsed, all skin and feathers removed
2 pks. onion soup mix
~ 1 gallon of water

Boil about an hour to an hour and a halfuntil leg meat is tender-but not falling off the bone checking them every twenty minutes, pull them out and spread on a cookie sheet

Orange marmalade sauce:
(I pulled this from the DHC recipe forum. A member posted it up in 2008.)
1 Cup Orange marmalade jelly
2 cups orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar

mix in a small pot and simmer until sauce starts to foam up and is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. You can make this while the duck legs are simmering in the water.

After duck legs and thighs are done simmering, season with cajun seasoning or steak seasoning, then put them on the grill and baste with the marmalade sauce. Grill until done. :thumbsup: Let them cool and put them in a zip lock, throw them on ice to bring the next day in the duck blind. :beer: Should be da bomb sitting in the marsh waiting on birds to fly!!!!


Might add a little pineapple juice and/or ginger to the sauce....gonna play around with it this season....

This sounds great. Think you could do it to the breast too? Or better as "wings"

might be able to make blind snacks with the breasts this way too...but I'm looking for more ways to utilize the legs and thighs while we are at the camp. This looks to be a perfect way to do so.

We do a version with our goose legs and thighs. Best parts of the waterfowl. Too bad most throw them out.

After contemplating this recipe for a little while, I think I'm gonna try seasoning the duck legs and thighs, then put them in a ziplock with bacon fat and simmer them in hot water. the bacon fat will keep the meat more moist and the smoky bacon fat will help flavor the meat. then I will pull them out and grill them with the glaze....I'll let ya'll know how they turn out. If they are good, this will become a staple item in the Indablind. :thumbsup:

frying those boudin balls at Byers gave me another great idea...making duck dirty rice, then frying it like boudin balls. Bet it'll be awesome!

Made a pate a few years back with smoked duck legs and breasts. Can't remember the exact recipe, but it was very good while hanging out in blind.

I keep forgetting your "duck blind" is more like a hotel room. When I think duck blind, I think of sitting in the boat on the edge of the lake. I opened this and first thing I see is "Orange Marmalade" thinking what tha... Oh, one of the Inda's recipies. I was expecting cubed duck breast over one of those small camp canister cookers or something.
