We all know that duck is probably the most delicious bird-type meat ever. It’s a million times better than turkey or chicken and I really don’t know why North Americans don’t get on it for Thanksgiving and Easter. Anyway, that’s a blog post for another day. However, I’m a wee bit scared to cook it, even though I’ve tackled turkeys and whole chickens quite easily.
But, not to worry because they have pre-cooked, sliced duck at all the major grocery stores here in Korea and it’s fabulously delicious. As a little splurge, I bought a package yesterday. And here’s what I did with it:
Round 1: I was very hungry when I got home from the grocery store so I fried some up and ate it straight-up with mustard sauce.
Round 2: I fried up some more of it and put it on top of a big green salad with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing. It made a boring kind of salad into one of the most delicious things I’ve eaten in a long time.
Round 3: I made some duck fried rice for hiking. It was kind of the ultimate lunch on the mountain and the duck grease made everything taste quite fabulous. Duck grease and garlicky goodness: YUM!
Round 4: I’m contemplating a sandwich with some homemade bread, ripe tomatoes and lettuce, with a bit of mustard and mayo. It depends how inspired I feel tomorrow.
So, even though it cost 12 000, it’s actually a lot of meals and I’ll definitely be buying one again at some point in the near future.
