AMAZING!!! I didn't have fresh parsley so I used 1/3c. of dried in stread. If you have wild duck you should soak it in salt water for at least two to three days prior to making your meal. I also took all the ingredients with some oil and put in a ziplock bag and marinated the duck breasts in it overnight. Then I grilled it and we enjoyed it with some grilled asparagus and some garlic romano provolone mashed potatoes and it was one of our favorite meals! We will definitely be eating this again.

Oil does not shimmer.

We bought some duck breast and googled it. Chose this recipe..excellent...better than what we could have gotten in a restaurant!!!! Cooked them with the seasoning and some onions and mushrooms did add a touch of Emeril's seasoning...served with cauliflower, mashed potato, carrots and salad with balsamic vinegar...delicious!!!!
