    Girlfriend had some duck breasts in the freezer so I thought I would marinate them then smoke them.

    Short turn around so I Made a marinade of white wine,orange juice & zest,ginger,garlic,sichuan pepper ,brown sugar,cloves ,cinnamon soy sauce. Will sit for 4 hours.Smoke in the MES for 2 hours. Sear skin at the end.

    GF  let slip childhood memory of her Croatian mothers lightly pickled cucumbers,so I will do radish,cucumber,onion lightly pickled as a side.

    Smoked them for 90 minutes at 110c,then reduced the marinade in a pan,added a tab orange marmalade. It was home made but I can't remember where I got it.

    I did a lightly pickled veg mix,went very well with the fattiness  of the duck.

  3. Hey that looks lovely!!!

    The flavors must be terrific!!!

    Just beautiful!

    Cheers! - Leah

    Your smoked marinated duck breast looks great, Mick.  I really like the sound of the marinade ingredients, sounds zesty and delicious, a good complement for the richness of the duck.

    What did the inside look like...nicely medium rare I hope?  

    Thanks for sharing, and have a great weekend!

    Girlfriend said it was the best thing I have cooked her so far! Just on medium,dash of vinegar in the  finishing sauce to cut the sweetness in the marmalade.

    Its sort of a duck l'orange  but Asian.[​IMG]
