Duck confit tacos with a fresh cherry-orange salsa is the perfect summer meal! Whether you buy duck confit or make your own, this is a great dinner party recipe to impress your guests. This post is made in collaboration with LA VICTORIA® BRAND to celebrate #100YearsofLaVictoria!
I thought I had tried every kind of taco there is. Carnitas, cactus, even beef tongue.
That was until I partnered with LA VICTORIA® Brand to bring you these duck confit tacos.
Duck confit tacos? Nope, never had those. But I need to change that ASAP!
So here we are.
These duck confit tacos are inspired by a very fun occasion. To celebrate La Victoria’s 100th birthday, the brand is hosting four events in San Diego, LA, San Francisco, and Portland.
Each event will be a combination of food, music, and art. (The best things in life, am I right?) The events are supporting local artists and giving them a chance to win a very generous monetary prize.
The event in San Francisco was a hit, featuring these exact duck confit tacos from chef Gustavo Romero. It was created in celebration of the bold Mexican-inspired flavors of the West Coast (which I know all about from living in San Diego five years).
For these duck confit tacos, you can either buy duck confit or make it. Now, like a crazy person, I decided to make my own in 98 degree weather. I can strongly confirm to you: that was a bad idea.
Honestly, I would just buy it. Check a local butcher or artisan grocer. You could even buy it online. And if you can’t find it, sliced duck breast will work just as well. (Or chicken! Or beef! Or shrimp. Or tofu. Really, you could just use your favorite protein here. But duck is extra fancy.)
Then, fill either a jicama taco (used in the recipe) or a tortilla (what I used, cause #carbs) with the duck, LA VICTORIA® Cilantro Salsa Mild, a cherry-orange salsa made with LA VICTORIA® Fire Roasted Chiles, and avocado mousse.
The salsa, made with fresh cherries, orange segments, chiles, red onion, and lime juice, is amazing. That really takes these duck confit tacos to a whole new level and screams summer! I also love the Mexican marinade, which I am now using on everything. Forever.
