  • Muscovy Duck Breasts with Citrus-Honey Sauce

    Ingredients

    • Juice and zest of one large orange (about ½ cup juice)
    • ½ cup Duck and Veal Demi-Glace
    • 1 tablespoon orange marmalade
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    • About 10 fresh kumquats, thinly sliced
    • 2 Rohan Duck Breasts
    • Salt & freshly ground black pepper

    Preparation

    1/ In a small saucepan, whisk together orange juice, demi-glace, marmalade, and honey. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture reduces by half. Stir in vinegar. Continue to cook down until sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in kumquats. Keep sauce warm.

    2/ Score the duck skin in a crosshatch pattern being careful to only cut through fat, not the meat. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a dry skillet over medium-high heat. Place the duck breasts skin side down and cook, until fat has rendered and skin is evenly browned. Turn breasts over and continue to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of one breast reaches 140 degrees F, for medium-rare.

    3/ Allow duck breasts to rest on a cutting board for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving with the warm citrus-honey sauce.
