Grilled Duck

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

1 Duck breast

3 Tbs worcestershire sauce

1 Tbs seasoning salt

Olive oil

3 Tbs soy sauce

Take your Duck breast sliced into 1/2 inch strips (These will be grilled, so don’t cut them too thin as they may fall between the grate). Put slices into a zip lock bag, we will be marinating in this bag so make sure the bag is only half full.  Pour olive oil into the bag until it covers the duck.  Add soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and salt.  Mix together and leave in refrigerator for 24 hours or more.  After 24 hours cook duck strips on the grill, cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side.  be careful not to over cook the duck.  Overcooking will leave the duck tough.
