In the U.S. the only way to eat a wild duck is to shoot it yourself or to get one from a duck-hunting friend. The marshes around the Caspian are migratory-duck heaven and locals sell them at the Rasht market. Teal, called khodka in Persian, is particularly popular during the autumn when it is in season. Whether made with wild duck or farmed duck, as here, this kabab is quite delicious, especially when basted with a little pomegranate molasses.
