This weeks episode takes us across the narrow sea. If you want to make a day of it see my post for Breakfast in Meereen. A great recipe for Mother’s day, or any day. Serve with Buttered Turnips and Greens.
Illyrio smiled enigmatically and tore a wing from the duck. Honey and grease ran over his fingers and dripped down into his beard as he nibbled at the tender meat. – A Game of Thrones
Duck has always sounded too fancy for me to be able to make at home, but I swear to you, it was super easy! In the GoT cookbook there are some recipes for whole duck but, a whole duck would be too much for our little family so I opted for duck legs. The trick is too roast them low and slow for a couple of hours and then crank up the heat at the end to crisp the skin. The end result was perfection! The meat was fall off the bone tender and that skin – so crisp and flavourful! A dinner easily fit for a queen – no, not a queen, a Khaleesi!
