Bacon Wrapped Duck Breasts


1/4 cup salt
8 cups water
12 duck breast halves
12 slices bacon
1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian-style salad dressing


Mix together salt and water. Set aside 2/3 of the mixture, and pour  the rest into a glass baking dish. Soak the duck in the salt water  overnight to remove the gamey. Change the salt water twice, or  until mostly clear.

The next morning, discard the salt water, and pour salad dressing  over the duck breasts, and marinate for at least 8 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Wrap each  breast half in one strip of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Place  the breasts in a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Bake for about 1 hour, or until bacon is crisp, and duck is cooked  through.
