Grilled Duck with Warm Mushroom Salad and Truffle Vinaigrette

    I made this for a dinner party and it was very good. Because I wanted the juiciness from cooking with the skin on, I scored the skin and rendered a lot of the fat in a frying pan. I then grilled the breasts with skin on and then removed the skin for serving. It was a little time consuming but it worked well as I was a bit concerned about grilling with all that fat. The mushroom and asparagus salad was also good but I don't think it had quite enough truffle oil to really get the flavor. I served it all with a browned butter pecan rice from this site.

    I didn't bring out a timer for the grill, so I overcooked the duck a bit. Past that, the dish was absolutely delicious! The mushroom and asparagus had tons of flavor and the marinade on the duck was so tasty. Check out my step by step instructions and photos at

    This was absolutely delicious! My husband, who is a light eater, cleaned his plate. He doesn't like asparagus, so I substituted green beans. They took longer than 2 minutes to cook, and I added a little wine for liquid. Next time, I'll partially steam the green beans before adding to the mushroom mixture. This is definitely a special dinner recipe.
