Anyone care to share a few of thier favorite recipes?
I' sure you've heard the old "tried and true" of putting a slice or a small jalepeno pepper in a breast, wrap with bacon and grill, but lets get creative here!
Thanks in advance.
If you haven't heard about the bacon wrap one, it's not much more than that and has a few variations. I'm going to try a slice of pablano pepper, a stick of Asiago cheeze, some garlic powder, an onion wedge after marinating in Wishbone Italian Dressing. Then wrap with bacon and grill.
And for you creative chef's out there, try this:
Grand Marnier Duck Breast
8 small breast halves (4 large halves ex: Mallard, Pintail, etc.) I use Teal.
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper (or in lieu of salt and pepper, 4 teaspoons of Tony Chachere's)
1 Tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons margerine/butter
2 chopped green onions (fiine)
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
1 teaspoon of orange marmalaid or juice of 1/2 orange and some grated peel
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup chicken stock
flour if needed
Nonstick cookiing spray
Score breast diagonally with knife. Rub well with mixture of lemon juice, salt, pepper, and honey. Coat skillet with cooking spray, add margarine, and place over medium-high heat until hot. Brown duck on all sides, decrease heat and saute' for 12-13 min (20 for large breast) turning occasionally. Transfer to heated platter and keep warm. Respray skillet with cooking spray and saute' green onions 2-3 minutes. Add Grande Marnier, marmalaid, wine, and stock; cook until reduced by half. Add flour to thicken if necessary. Pour sauce over duck breast and serve.
Yields 4 servings.
I add a couple of side to this dish to finish it off. Cubed and boiled new potatoes finished with melted butter and fresh chopped parsley and either steamed and seasoned artichoke or asparagus topped with a lemon dill sauce.
If there's one thing I learned about cooking in Louisiana, it's this:
