Who needs chips dunked in questionable salsa that came out of a jar when you can dunk these delicious duck gizzards in a Spicy Paleo Marinara Sauce?
Where to Buy Duck Gizzards?
I got mine from U.S. Wellness Meats although if you ask in the meat department of your grocery store or local butcher, you may find some specialty cuts available. If all else fails you can always sub in a different type of gizzard. I’m a big fan of chicken gizzards but duck gizzards are larger and, I think, super tasty. :)
Where’d All The Organs Go?
Organ meats, including gizzards, have been sadly neglected in America for the past century or so. We’re not sure why this change happened, but we do know that it is unfortunate for our health. You’ll be hard pressed to find anything more nutritious than organ meats.
In addition to providing a healthy helping of saturated fat and protein, they have some of the highest concentrations of micronutrients, including iron, selenium, and a whole host of B vitamins.
Don’t Knock It Till You Try It
Thanks to our recent organ meat-deficient diet, many people have a hard time getting over the “Ick!” factor to get their dose of organs. If that’s you, this recipe is sure to help you out.
By the time you get done coating the gizzards in egg and tapioca flour, then dipping it in spicy marinara sauce, you won’t even remember that you’re eating an animal’s insides.
