Wild Duck Fried Rice

There are certain recipes that are so versatile that they are a perfect place to incorporate your favorite wild game—especially those extra scraps that you don’t know what to do with. One of my favorite such recipes is fried rice—full of bold flavor, spice and sweetness and a perfect base in which to incorporate wild duck. If you don’t have duck it will also work well with diced venison, elk, pheasant, squirrel or pretty much anything else you have on hand. You can also incorporate whatever vegetables that you have on hand—shredded carrots, exotic mushrooms and bamboo shoots would all be great additions. Buy a sweet and sour sauce to serve as a side to the rice. The bold flavors will taste just as good as any dish you’d have at a Chinese restaurant and the meat will be even better.

If using wild duck or any other strong flavored meat, let it soak in orange juice or other acidic marinade overnight to help temper the strong flavor. I like orange juice in this case because it adds a sweetness that pairs well with duck.

Give this a try with the wild duck meat in your freezer. It will become your new favorite go-to dish, and makes great leftovers as the flavors improve over the next day.
