Things to do with leftover duck?

by Jenise » Mon Oct 16, 2006 2:38 pm

I'm trying to figure out something really different to do with leftover roast duck. My first thought was ravioli, remembering a smoked duck ravioli (my roast ducks weren't smoked, but that flavor can be added) I once swooned over at a little Napa Valley restaurant called Mama Nina's. Same idea, but easier, would be lasagna. Another interesting thought is a shepherds pie.

I've done the ravioli before, but not the other two. I've also tossed the cold duck shreds with arugula and a caesar-like dressing and given that the wrap treatment. But that's too lunchy for a chilly fall evening--I want something hot.

Has anyone here done anything interesting with surplus roast duck?

I used to do duck quesadillas, but then I saw Bobby Flay do them so now I don't like them anymore.

I just saw someone offer this idea somewhere else:
shredded duck and hoisin sauce on a pizza. Sounds good to me.

How about duck soup - I could visualize (or tastualize) a posole tweaked with duck instead of pork.

Or turn the shredded duck into a ragu and fold it into some creamy polenta.

The other night we had duck spring rolls at a great restaurant in Pinehurst.
They were served with a spicy plum-type sauce. We devoured them.
They'd be easy to duplicate -- I think they were just duck and some finely shredded napa cabbage rolled up and deep fried.
You are so creative, I know you'll come up with something wonderful.

You could try doing what I do with leftover lamb.

a) Coat in honey and spices of choice

b) heat under grill until crispy

c) serve with lettuce or salad as a starter

The lasagna is a great idea.

How about Duck Sticky Buns?

As part of a hot oil fondue, perhaps with broccoli rabe and sliced fingerlings?

Even better: Bagna Cauda Quacker!
