recipes for divers

Postby johnboy07 » Sat Dec 22, 2007 8:07 pm

Anybody know any recipes or know where to get recipes for divers. Heard they weren't really that great tasting.

soak em in milk overnight, and change the milk a few times if you can, then cut them up in small bite size pieces, bread with a seasoned or cajun type breading then deep fry, pretty tasty

...and if you are really finicky take the fried nuggets and add chilli or stew fixins. Granted at that point it doesnt taste at ALL like duck...more like meat substate but its damn good. The North Carolina guys call it stew-fryin and an old guy out on Hatteras Island told me once its the only way he'd eat a "blackhead"

If I understand you correctly, you are taking crews fried cubes and then adding them to an ordinary chili or stew? I'm assuming the cubes instead of any other meat?

Blackhead=brant?

Sorry,
guess I could have specified a little better
yes - just use the cubes in place of other meat
&
blackheads = broadbills - the Carolina guys call them blackheads
but it works great with brant too!

You are correct, divers are not the greatest table fare; however, if you soak them ( breast meat only) in milk with an onion and apple overnight you can remove some of the fishy liver taste. After that marinade them in some good seasons italian dressing, substituting the red wine vinegar for balsamic vinegar over night again. Place the breasts over med/high heat on your grill for three minutes each side. Remove and let rest for only 3 minutes. Slice thin and enjoy. Remember the rarer the better if you over cook than give your dog a treat.
