Duck Gumbo

Waterfowl Hunting is one of my favorite types of hunting. So far I have only hunted them
from ponds around the Choke Canyon area and the bay marsh lands of South Texas.
Teal are my favorite type of duck to hunt and eat! Teal are fast and sneaky, you have to
be ready to shoot fast…..defiantly have to be on “A” Game for Teal! They are also my
favorite ducks to eat. They have a lighter taste to them. I usually bacon wrap them and
cook them on the grill using my dove recipe. The other ducks species we shoot in
abundance down here are, pintail, widgeon, buffleheads and redheads. Some of these
other ducks have a stronger game taste to them. In my opinion these gamier ducks taste
best in dishes like gumbo! Below is a great duck gumbo recipe! Enjoy!
●2 wild ducks, cut up and lightly browned on the out side
●1/2 cup olive oil
●2/3 cup all-purpose flour or rice flour for a Gluten free option
●1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
●2 cups chopped onion
●1-1/2 cups chopped green bell pepper
●1-1/2 cups chopped red bell pepper
●2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
●1 tablespoon minced garlic
●1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
●1 can Rotel mild
●2 bay leaves
●2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
●1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
●1 teaspoon dried thyme
●1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
●2 quarts water
●Hot cooked rice
In a Dutch oven over medium heat, brown duck in batches in oil. Remove and set aside.
Discard all but 2/3 cup drippings. Add flour to drippings; cook and stir over medium heat
until brown, 12-14 minutes. This part is called the Roux of the Gumbo and it is very
important not to burn this mixture. Be sure to watch it very close when cooking it. Next
add sausage, onion, green pepper, celery, parsley and garlic. Cook for 10 minutes,
stirring occasionally.Stir in the next ingredients. Add duck; bring to a boil. Reduce heat;
cover and simmer 60-75 minutes or until duck is tender. Now remove duck, let cool, and
cut into even smaller chunks, then return to pan. Simmer 5-10 minutes or until heated
through. Remove bay leaves. Serve over a bed of rice. Don’t forget the Louisiana Hot
Sauce for those who like extra spice! Enjoy!
