  • 2 tablespoons ground fennel seed
  • 1 tablespoon pureed canned chipotles
  • 2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
  • Pineapple-Red Onion Relish:

  • 1/2 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped cilantro

Directions
Marinade:

About 8 hours or 1 day before serving, prick the skin of the duck all over with a fork. In a large pot over high heat, bring 8 quarts of water to a rapid boil and blanch the ducks for 5 minutes. Remove the ducks from the water and set aside. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Brush on duck and let marinate at least 4 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roast the ducks, breast side up, for 20 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 and continue cooking for another 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let rest at room temperature for about 20 minutes

Pineapple-Red Onion Relish:

Combine all in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble: Duck Flour tortillas, warmed Pineapple-Red Onion Relish Green onions

Carve the breast from each duck and slice very thin on the bias, allowing half a breast per person. Take a torilla, spread a little relish on it and place the sliced duck over that, top with a green onion, roll and eat.
