An Insiders Mango Mallard Recipe

An Insiders Mango Mallard Recipe - This Mango Mallard recipe is very simple and doesn't require many ingredients as you can see. If I'm being honest this was a product of renting a house for a month in Florida with a kitchen that left much to be desired. The kitchen basically had no utensils and about 1.5 square feet of counter space. To say I wasn't feeling very creatively motivated was an understatement. Anyways, I had a package of mallard thawed in the fridge that I needed to cook and I needed to grocery shop to boot. I remember looking around thinking "what the hell am I going cook this duck with?" I looked on the counter and saw a lone mango I also needed to use up. I didn't know if it would even be remotely tasty. In transparency I just liked the way "Mango Mallard" rolled of the tongue and come to find out, it was pretty damn good. Hope you enjoy!
