It is not necessary to travel to discover new taste of disches. Sambavanilla offers a salty recipe based on vanilla and Madagascan spices sold on our website.

For 4 people, you need:     
• 1 duck of 2 kg     
• 4 small tomatoes     
• 3 onions     
• 5 garlic pieces     
• 3 beautiful slices of thyme     
• The pulp of 2 vanilla pods (keep the pods)     
• 1 teaspoon of turmeric

• 1 small glass of amber rum + 1 tablespoon of honey     
• 2 to 4 cloves     
• Black pepper grain & salt    
 • 8 g of ginger    
 • 3 tablespoons of olive oil

Cooking steps:    
• Cut the duck into pieces.    
• Mix the rum, honey, vanilla pulp, pepper and water the pieces of duck. Let cool for at least an hour (for more flavor, marinate 6 hours).   
 • Chop the onions, pile the garlic with cloves, ginger, salt and pepper and detail the flesh of the brunoise tomatoes.    
• In a pot, heat the oil, put the duck and make it brown (keep the marinade) - Attention, if the duck is too fat, remove the excess oil, it must remain in the pot, the equivalent of 3 spoons.   
 • Once the meat is golden brown, add the onion, the garlic-ginger-clove mixture, the turmeric, the nutmeg.   
 • Sprinkle with marinade, then add the tomatoes, thyme and vanilla pods and cover with water.   
 • Simmer for 45 minutes or 1 hour.
The sauce should be short, unctuous and brown.
You can serve this dish with white rice and grains.
