IngredientsRecipe for 4 persons
- Salt and pepper
- Vegetable oil
Preparation time: 90 min
Preheat your barbecue at 500 °F
Pluck all of the fresh herbs for the chimichurri. Peel and mince the garlic. Finely slice the onion and green onions. Cut the bacon into thin strips and cook in a skillet until nice and caramelized. Form petals from the red onion. Remove the seeds from the center of the jalapenos. Grate the smoked chedar.
- Sweet potatoes
Cut the sweet potatoes in two lengthwise and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake them in the oven for roughly 40 minutes or until tender. Dig a nice well in each half potato and save the removed flesh in a mixing bowl.
In the mixing bowl, combine the sweet potato flesh with the bacon, sour cream, green onion and smoked chedar.
Transfer the stuffing back to the center of the wells in the half potatoes and then grill on the barbecue for 8-10 minutes.
Remove the excess fat from the duck breasts. Cut them into 2cm cubes. Skewer the cubes on bamboo or stainless steel skewers. Season with salt and pepper and then cook on your preheated charcoal grill. You want the meat thermometer to read 52C. Let rest for 2 minutes before serving.
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, food processor or blend with your hand mixer. Blend until almost smooth while retaining a nice fresh bite. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Chimichurri is a great way to pass fresh herbs that are starting to lose their freshness. Feel free to experiment with the herbs used in this recipe.
