Blackened Duck in Mango Sauce


(Not sure if this is what the caveman in the Geico comercial ordered but it IS good and not extremely difficult)


Something tells me Arkiesteel will love this one!!!!!!

Olive oil, for sauteing (sp?)
Blackening spices, to coat duck pieces
1 whole duck, cut into pieces
Mango Salsa (recipe follows)
Wild Rice, recipe follows
Vegetable Medley (recipe follows)

Heat a large round grill pan (dont use cast iron,...I made that mistake) over medium-high heat. Add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan... and let oil heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Rub the blackening spices all over the duck pieces until both sides are covered.... Carefully place the spiced duck pieces into the pan, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until done to your liking.

Mango Salsa:
2 mangoes, skinned and diced
1 large onion, diced
1 lime, juiced
2 to 3 tomatoes, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until thoroughly mixed.... Set aside to let flavors meld.... Spoon the salsa over the duck pieces, or serve as a garnish on the side.


Wild Rice:
1 box wild rice
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Prepare the wild rice according to the directions on the box.... In a medium skillet, saute the pepper, onion, and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until vegetables are tender... be careful not to let the garlic burn.... When the rice is fully cooked, add the sauteed vegetables to the rice, and stir to combine.


Vegetable Medley:
Olive oil, for sauteing
1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 pound mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
30 string beans, trimmed
2 to 3 carrots, thinly sliced
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add enough olive oil to thinly coat the bottom of the pan, and let oil heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the pepper, mushrooms, and garlic to the pan, and saute until the vegetables are almost tender. Add the beans and carrots to the pan, and cook until all of the vegetables are slightly tender and the flavors have combined. Serve with the Blackened Duck and Wild rice.
