Most waterfowl hunters tend to target mallards, teal, wood ducks, and canvasback when hunting for the table, but we’re here to say that if you’re scrapping the sea ducks, divers, and mergansers, you are sorely missing out on some of the best tasting wild game you’re ever going to find. You may think that because of their diets, these ducks would taste terrible, but properly processed, cooked, and seasoned, these birds will blow your taste buds apart!

Here is a short list of our four all-time best tasting ducks complete with carefully curated, no-fail recipes to test out with your friends and families at your next meal. Bon Appetit!

Scoter Stir-Fry

With three appetizing varieties to choose from, the common/black, white-winged, and surf scoter are some of the oceans best kept scarf-it-down secrets. Feeding only on the finest and briniest of seabed clams, snails, and sea worms, these delicious diving ducks are naturally-infused with that fresh fish flavor with a nautical aftertaste that sends you straight to the toilet. Save your sea duck limit of trophy bull eider wall hangers for next year and load up on a set of scrumptious scoter for our salty stir-fry that will surely satiate—or spoil—your craving for sea duck cuisine.
