Duck Fingers with Gravy
Here is another one that was a big hit with the family this year:


Duck Fingers with Gravy

Ingredients

  • 4 ducks, breast filleted and cut into thick strips (I use redheads and gadwalls)

  • 2 cups AP flour, seasoned with Creole Seasoning to taste.

  • 2 egg, beaten

  • 2 packs of onion or mushroom gravy mix.

  • Oil for deep frying


Brine

  • 1 cup vegetable broth

  • 1 cup cold water

  • 2 tbs cup Kosher Salt

  • 1 tbs cup brown sugar

  • tablespoon peppercorns

  • tsp garlic powder

  • 1 bay leaf


Combine all Brine ingredients except cold water in a large pot. Heat just until sugar and salt is dissolved. Remove from heat, let mixture come to room temperature, add cold water, then refrigerate to 40F.
In a large non-reactive container (I use a Ziploc), combine the brine with duck strips. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours, stiring/shaking the bag occasionally. Remove duck strips from the brine and dry on paper towels.


Heat oil in deep fryer or deep cast iron pan to 375F.
Dust duck fingers in flour mixture, then egg, then back in flour mixture.
Deep fry in small batches for 2-3 minutes, do not overcook.
While frying ducks, prepare gravy per directions.
Serve duck with the gravy & mashed potatoes. Biscuits or good bread for sopping up gravy is important as well. Makes great sandwiches too.
