Post your best redhead recipe! Also, I have soaked all of my breasts in buttermilk for 24 hours this season. Anyone ever done that and if so, how did it turn out (better or worse than salt water)?

I used to soak mine in butter milk as well. There was never a difference in flavor and salt water is much cheaper than having to buy butter milk all the time.

I soak all my ducks in salt water.

As for Redheads, I haven't shot one in years. But the last time I marinated the breasts overnight in yoshidas gourmet sauce with a garlic and red pepper flakes. I then sauteed up some peppers and onions, at the last minute I threw in the sliced duck breast and only cooked it for about a minute or two longer. Served over rice and it was excellent.

I just will soak them in dales steak seasoning over night. Wrap the breast with a piece of bacon and grill it. Quite good. I usually do that with all my birds.

I use wine, vidalia sauce, teriyaki, olive oil, minced garlic, cumin and onions. Soak for at least 24 hours. Makes any duck taste great on the grill.

Mines kinda a weird one that we came up with one night at the hunting camp. We soaked our reds in coke then we found a can of the manderian oranges and sliced an onion. Then wrapped the breast with the orange slice and some onion in bacon. Threw it on the grill with some garlic and pepper. Turned out pretty damn good.

Where in the world are you shooting these redheads that you need all the marinades/sauces/potions? The redheads I've shot....Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin are ABSOLUTELY delicious! I pick 'em, roast in a nest of sauerkraut(seems to soak up excess fat) with a quartered orange as stuffing. Food fit for the gods. I like duck and consider redheads numero uno for roasting.
