Marinades are used to neutralize the game flavor in ducks and wild game. I have used several marinades, including the basic Italian Dressing, but I find this one to be exceptional.


  • 2 cups dry wine
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup balsamic or red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp freshly cracked black pepper


Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a container with a tight fitting lid. Shake well and pour over game.

Step 2

Cover and refrigerate for 6 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.

Step 3

Before cooking, let game drain and pat dry with paper towels.

Before marinating the ducks, I place the ducks in a glass bowl in the refrigerator's vegetable crisper for a couple of days to let the duck bleed out.
