View Full Version : question about teal
10-12-2004, 11:27 AM
I hunted teal for the first time this year during the early season. I had people tell me that you can not eat them. My question is can you or can you not eat teal?

somebody is lying to you. you can eat teal. in my opinion its not as good as pintail or gadwall, but teal are edible.
yeah, someone is really pulling your leg.
i have eaten hundreds of teal. greenwings are much better than bluewings but they both make great tablefare.

thanks for clearing it up . I kept the teal anyways. now just need recipes any sites or any suggestions on how to cook? how about a bog or cajun stile taking some up home for a hunting trip. will any waterfowl recipe work?

i dont know very much about recipies, but for a real cajun taste, use plenty of oinions, bellpeppers, tobasco, and you can also try to find some cajun injector marinades, some of them come with recipies i think
its very important not to over cook waterfowl!!!!!
duck is best medium rare. grilling is great or bake in the oven with basil and orange slices.

I suggest that you check out www.stoegerpublishing.com (http://www.stoegerpublishing.com) or click the link at the top of the FORUMS page and go to the cookbook section.
They have wonderful books (Wild about Game Birds and Wild about Waterfowl) that address your question about game bids.

Maybe I'm stuck in a rut, but I always marinate duck breasts in a bit of Italian dressing and then put them on the grill until they're medium rare. I think they're better than chocolate.
Teal are wonderful fare. The only problem I ever have with teal is that you need 2 or 3 of them per person.

Rut. A lot of my buddies do the same thing. I'm kinda in a rut as well, i split out a jalpeno and fill it full of cream cheese and put it next to the bird, wrap it in bacon and put it on the grill.

1. marinate whole Teal in italian dressing for at least 24 hours
2. brown the ducks thoroughly in olive oil and then remove and add to a baking dish
3. brown a few links of andoulle sausage and stuff them inside the Teal
4. Sautee onions, bell pepper, and celery until tender
5. While sauteeing vegetables stuff Teal with two slices of ***** and two slices of fresh jalepeno surrounding the sausage
6. Pour the sauteed vegetables over the Teal
7. Add a cup of white cooking wine and bake at 350 until done
This is by far my favorite way to eat ducks. My neighbor gave me this recipe last year and now I cook almost all my ducks and doves like this.
