Bacon Wrapped Duck Breasts Recipe
- ¼ cup salt
- 8 cups water
- 12 duck breast halves
- 12 slices bacon
- 1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian-style salad dressing
step 1: Mix together salt and water. Set aside 2/3 of the mixture, and pour the rest into a glass baking dish. Soak the duck in the salt water overnight to remove the gamey. Change the salt water twice, or until mostly clear.
step 2: The next morning, discard the salt water, and pour salad dressing over the duck breasts, and marinate for at least 8 hours.
step 3: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Wrap each breast half in one strip of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Place the breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
step 4: Bake for about 1 hour, or until bacon is crisp, and duck is cooked through.
