Chicken Fried Dove Nuggets with Sriracha Ketchup

This is what a Girl does on her 40th Birthday! HAHAHA. In reality this is what we do every year on my Birthday since it falls on September 1.

We didn’t see a lot of doves for opening day where we could actually shoot them. Of course, I counted about 30 in my backyard the evening before Opener. I think they know something was up. Funny thing is that I end up with more dead doves hitting our windows every year then I ever seem to get to shoot during the season.

But for this Birthday girl at least I came home with 3 out of 4 doves. I figure that should at least make a few appetizers for myself.

SERVING: 1 to 2 people. Perfect for an appetizer.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 dove breasts cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • Canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • Chopped fresh chives (optional)

Smoked Goose Tacos

I was pretty excited to receive two whole specklebelly geese from a friend of ours, Chad Belding with The Fowl Life. I had heard that these geese are some of the best geese you can get your hands on. So of course, never having had one, I thought I would create a recipe that is a bit different than most. Now you can follow the instructions for the dry rub and smoking method and then serve the geese all by themselves, or serve in a warm flour or corn tortilla with tart green apple, crispy cabbage, shaved carrots and a small amount of cilantro sauce.

Substitute Mallard Duck for the Specklebelly Geese

Serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Specklebelly geese, plucked and cleaned
  • Cabbage slaw, shredded
  • Green apples, thinly sliced
  • Flour or corn tortillas

Brine 

  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 8 cups water

Dry Rub Seasonings

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

Cilantro Sauce

Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides.

  • 2 cups cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Duck Chow Mein

Duck Chow Mein

Asian stir-fry’s are some of my favorite ways to incorporate waterfowl and fresh vegetables. This duck chow mein recipe is so simple and easy to make and is packed full of flavor. If you are on a low-carb diet, serve without the noodles or over a bowl full of riced cauliflower or quinoa. You can also add other assortments of vegetables such as bell pepper, red cabbage, bok choy, baby corn and bean sprouts.

Serves 6

Marinade

Clean duck breasts and slice into 1/4 inch thin strips and place into a glass dish or pan. Mix all marinade ingredients in a small bowl and pour over meat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 1 hour or overnight.

  • 6 Duck breasts
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated

  • 24 ounces chow mein noodles (cook as directed)
