Hi all,

I found a fresh duckling at the store yesterday, and I'm trying to figure out how I want to cook it for dinner tonight. I've done duck several times with several different recipes, but looking for something new. Any ideas?

Thx,

-John

    i did alton brown's cook on the egg.

    recipe:
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/mighty-duck-recipe/index.html

    and the important part of the cook on youtube



    doing it over, i'd steam the thighs for 20 minutes, then throw in the breasts for 25 (thighs for a total of 45 minutes).

    i also de-boned a bit more to get the duck to press flat.

    i used a brick to press it flatter

    here's the skin at the point of utter perfection (if i do say so myself)

    and plated with cubed sweet potatoes (roasted in ducj fat), wild rice (with added wild shrooms), and spinach in the place of alton's swiss chard (see recipe)
