Here's the first one I found online doing a quick search. I'm guessing you could substitute 1 goose for the 4 ducks:


4 large ducks, cut up
4 T. flour
2 T. oil
1 stick butter
2 C. fresh okra, cut up
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 T. scallions, chopped
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
3 qt. water
Gumbo filé
Salt and pepper, to taste

Place ducks in Dutch oven with water, celery salt, salt and pepper and boil until tender. Remove ducks and set aside.

Fry fresh okra in oil about 10 minutes.

Make a roux using the stick of butter and 4 tablespoons flour, until the roux is chocolate brown. Add cut-up ducks and 3 quarts of water. Bring all to a boil and simmer 2 to 3 hours. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with a little rice in soup bowls and garnish with the filé and chopped scallions. Serves 10
