- General preparation
Remove the skin and fat layer from the duck magret, leaving only the meat. Cut the meat with a knife so as to obtain small cubes. Cut the bacon into small pieces. Chop the shallots and chives. Finely chop the gherkins and capers. Grate the Parmigiano Reggiano.
- For the tartar preparation
In a non-stick skillet, fry the bacon on medium heat until you obtain a golden brown color and crispy bacon. Drain the bacon pieces and place them on a sheet of absorbent paper. In a bowl, mix the diced duck with chives, shallots, gherkins, capers, mustard, Parmesan cheese, crispy bacon and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- For the crostini preparation
Slice the baguette at an angle to get your crostinis. Place them on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for about 10 minutes or until crisp.
- For the fingerling potatoes
In a big pot, cover the potatoes with cold water, bring it to boil and let it cook for 20 minutes, once cooled cut the potatoes. In a pan, warm the duck fat and sear the potatoes until they get crispy, then season with salt and pepper.
- To serve
Present the duck tartar in the center each plate with the help of a ring mold. Then garnish with a few crostinis. Garnish with the potatoes on the side. You can serve your duck tartar as tapas, forming a small scoop of tartare on each crostini.
Duck meat is considered a red meat so it can be served raw or rare without danger as opposed to other poultry (chicken, turkey...).
