Prosciutto-Wrapped Duck

Recipe adapted from myrecipes.com

  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 (12-ounce) package boneless whole duck breast, thawed, skinned, and cut into 12 (1-inch) pieces
  • 6 slices prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise
  • Jar of prepared plum jelly
  • Cooking spray

Combine dry red wine, lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, dry mustard, black pepper, and bay leaf in a large zip-top plastic bag.

Add duck pieces and seal. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove duck from bag and discard marinade.

Prepare grill at medium heat for direct cooking. If using wood or bamboo skewers, prepare them by soaking in water.

Wrap one piece of duck with one strip prosciutto. Repeat with remaining duck and prosciutto. Thread two pieces of duck onto six-inch skewers.

Place the skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray and grill 5 minutes on each side.

While cooking, brush generous amounts of the plum jelly on each side.

Heat and reduce the rest of the plum jelly and serve as a dipping sauce.
