Back a while ago a friend gave me birthday gifts that included some nice smoked meats from Nodine's, a local smokehouse just north of here. Both the duck breast and the cornish hen are of pretty decent size, and are fully cooked, vacuum packed and frozen. I need to use each of them to serve dinner for the two of us and, honestly, have not been able to think of anything interesting to do with them. I mean smoked duck breast over a salad just does not really excite me and would kind of be what I would consider to be kind of a waste of a splurge sort of thing.
So if any of my more creative colleagues out there have any experience with either of these meats, either in reality or imagination, I'd truly appreciate your suggestions and inspirations.
