  • 6 duck prey
  • 3 tablespoons ground garlic
  • Juice of 5 sour oranges
  • 2 arnaucho peppers or minced limo pepper
  • 3 tablespoons ground yellow pepper (escabeche)
  • 3 tablespoons ground mirasol chili (dried yellow chili)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 large onions, sliced
  • 1 kilo of parboiled cassava
  • Salt, pepper and cumin to taste


  1. Season the duck pieces with salt and pepper.
  2. In a bowl, mix a tablespoon of garlic, a little cumin, the sour orange juice, the arnaucho chili (or slime), half the yellow chili and the mirasol chili, place the duck pieces and marinate for at least 2 hours.
  3. After that time, remove the prey from the maceration, leaving the liquid in the bowl.
  4. Place the pan on the burner, add the oil and once hot, brown the pieces on both sides, then remove them and reserve on a plate.
  5. In the oil that remains from frying, brown the rest of the garlic and chili peppers, add the golden pieces and the maceration juice, cover and cook over low heat for about 30 minutes, taking care not to dry or burn. It should not be necessary to add liquid but keep an eye on it just in case.
  6. Then add the onion, mix so that it is distributed throughout the pan. Taste the seasoning, if necessary add more salt to taste. Cover and let cook for about 15 more minutes. Turn off the heat and let stand covered for about 5 minutes before serving.

  1. If we don't get sour oranges, we can use the juice of 5 oranges mixed with the juice of 2 lemons.
  2. We can use a rocoto or small chili instead of the arnaucho or limo peppers.
  3. The yellow and mirasol peppers must be ground without seeds or skin

To serve, place a portion of rice on the plate and a yucca base on the side. Put the prey on the yucca and serve the stew on top. You can also garnish with lettuce, hot pepper slices and olives. BON APETIT!
