Question ISO skinless duck recipe

I am getting a couple of home raised ducks, that were slaughtered the other day, but they have no skin. I guess it is just easier to take the whole skin of rather than pluck the feathers. Any idea folks how to cook it?

How about braising them in a little red wine with some mushrooms, celery, onions, carrots.

The geese I have gotten the last two years from my friend have come skinless.

I did the first on the grill (indirect grilling) and the second in the oven. I covered in bacon, but other than that did not really treat them differently.

You can always buy some smoked sausage and such and make a cassoulet.

I seasoned with S&P and stuck it in the oven and let it roast, I think it was about 350F.

The bacon kept things moist, wild geese have a lot less fat on em than the farmed ones.

If I remember you don't do bacon, so you will have to figure that bit out.

YUMMY!!!!!


No skin, damn, what a bummer, that is the best part.

You could still do a confit with them, always nice to have some on hand for duck taquitos w/farmers cheese and salsa verde. Or just to pull and serve on some rice. . . I would just really miss that skin. . .

Frank's mention of bacon made me think of the German/Pennsylvania Dutch recipe.

Duck, bacon, sauerkraut, onions and apples roasted/braised low and slow.

Neah, I don't think so. i have phobia about birds in general, and dead ones in particular. I cannot evel look at them.Live ones are fine, and cleaned ones are fine. No plucking for me.
