Guys, my son found the recipe, below, and cooked if for us. Let me say, it is good. In fact, my wife, who doesn't like any wild game, bragged on how good it is.

Just one note...He found this on Scott Leysath's page. Scott is known as the Sporting Chef.

Grilled Diver Duck Breasts
Serves 4

Diver ducks can often use a little help from a flavorful marinade. They're typically leaner and darker than puddle ducks, but can be just as tasty, provided you know how to cook them.



8-12 diver duck breast half-fillets (depending on size of ducks)
1/3 c. olive oil
3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary
1½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1½ tsp. kosher salt

1. Whisk together olive oil and remaining ingredients. Place duck breasts in a zipper-lock bag, pour half of marinade over, reserving the other half to serve with cooked breasts. Squeeze out air and refrigerate for 2 hours.

2. Heat a well-lubricated grill to medium-hot. Remove duck from marinade, drain and place on grill. Cook until medium-rare on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

3. Allow meat to rest for a few minutes before serving. Arrange on plates and drizzle on remaining marinade
.

Looks good. Did he use a brine solution or anything to remove the blood/gamey taste from those divers before he marinated them?

He did not brine them. However, we always soak the ducks we clean in water, at least, 2 days...changing the water, each day.

I am telling you...this was very good. And, to be honest, I was a bit skeptical.

That is exactly what I thought, before I ate this. Anyway...

I'm just kiddin with ya......I'm sure it could be better than what I've had if it were cooked correctly. Sounds like a good recipe.

Thanks for posting that receipe. I am going to try that with some Ringer Dingers and Bluebills. I will say that divers make great jerky. I bought a jerky gun and have never turned one away. :P
