Waterfowl brunch

Canada geese and ducks close this weekend on January 10th. If you harvest a few ducks in the morning you may want to consider a waterfowl brunch.

Duck for Brunch
1 duck breast (both halves)
1 clove minced garlic
1 T. fresh parsley, if available
1 T. olive oil

Thinly slice fresh duck breast. Heat olive oil in a saute pan or iron skillet over medium heat. Add duck, garlic, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Saute the duck for a few minutes until cooked. Best served rare or medium rare for tenderness but cook according to your preference. Serve with eggs and brunch fixings in lieu of traditional bacon or sausage.


  1. Nothing like getting around to my post a year after this was posted, but I have sort of a request.

    Around here, the Thai Restaurants serve a spicy duck recipe. It appears to be a battered and fried duck breast dish. It's excellent.

    Does anyone know how to make it?

  2. I will definitely look into it!
