[intro]Smoked Orange Rosemary Duck is a wonderful duck recipe. This succulent orange duck recipe has a smokey but sweet taste that will knock your socks off! You will love making this smoked duck breast for a meal![/intro]
I admit when comes to duck recipes, it is not my specialty. I have never even tried an orange duck recipe that Chinese places have. So When Maple Leaf Farms sent me some duck breasts, I had to have a friend help me develop a smoked duck recipe!
Maple Leaf Farms
Maple leaf Farms has been in business for over 60 years. It produces quality duck products. Maple Leaf farms with care. Their ducks are from the local farm raised and follow animal well-being guidelines.
Duck with Orange
The friend who helped me develop this duck with orange recipe is originally from Poland. In Poland, duck is common dark meat. She was the perfect person to help develop a recipe for smoked duck breast.
We decided to make a this a smoked duck. To create this smoked duck recipe on a grill, we used a product called Smokin O’s. They are these wood rings you can put on a grill and turn the grill into a wood smoker. These rings really added flavor to this smoked duck breast!
Orange Duck Recipe
To complement the smoke flavor in the duck breast, we to make this an orange duck recipe. To really make the citrus soak into the duck recipe, a heatproof dish was used. The citrus juices get smoked right into the duck meat. This orange duck really came out with incredible flavor!
If we just put the duck breasts on the grill, you could lose that citrus taste. The heatproof baking dish on the grill was perfect for keeping the flavors we wanted in this smoked duck breast!
My friend suggested we add some apple to the duck recipe to help balance out the citrus with the smoke. Apple enhances that smoky taste we were going for in this duck with orange recipe.
Orange Rosemary Duck
When this duck recipe came off the grill, it was so delicious. The orange and rosemary just made this smoked duck burst with flavor. This orange duck recipe was a great way to enjoy duck meat recipe.
