Title: Quick duck rellenos hunter
Categories: Chile-heads, Southwester, Mc
Yield: 1 Servings
6 ripe Poblano chiles --
: roasted, peeled,
: slit and carefully deseeded
2 duck breasts (i.e. breasts
: one duck) -- fat
: removed (and
4 oz Monterey Jack cheese --
1 md onion -- coarsely chopped
: fresh hot peppers to taste
: diced (I used about
: dozen Thais)
4 cloves garlic -- crushed &
2 lg springs of fresh rosemary --
: coarsely chopped
: salt and freshly ground
: black pepper.
Melt a bit of duck fat in a very hot frying pan. Salt and pepper the
duck breasts, and fry them until cooked rare (approx 2 minutes per
side). Remove the breasts and let cool. Now fry the onions until
golden, adding a bit more duck fat if necessary. While the onions
are cooking, cut the duck breasts into small dice and put in a bowl.
When the onions are almost done, add the garlic, rosemary and hot
peppers, stir for about a minute, just enough to release the flavors.
Scrape into bowl with the duck and stir until well mixed. Stuff the
peppers with roughly 1/3 cheese, 2/3 duck mixture. You can batter
and fry them, but I baked these (10 minutes at 350 -- just enough to
melt the cheese and heat them through) and sauced them with my basic
ancho/cumin red sauce. Serves 2 as a main course, or 6 as an
appetizer. [NB. These are even better if you have time to roast a
duck instead of pan frying. Coat the duck with garlic & black bean
paste, prick the skin thorouhly with a fork, and roast at 325 for 1
1/2-2 hours, or until the fat has mostly cooked off. Let cool and
shred the meat, including bits of skin. Then substitute for the diced
cooked breast meat above.]
