One recipe that’s a huge hit in my house is a delicious melt in your mouth Duck Breast. Most home cooks don’t think to prepare Duck on a regular basis, however this protein is actually quite easy to whip up. If you live in the NYC area, I highly recommend stopping by Dicksons’s Farmstand Meats in The Chelsea Market. Here you can find delicious Duck Breast straight from an Upstate Farm & snag 2 portions for just under $10! The recipe I’m sharing with you is my favorite version adapted from several different recipes although my next venture will be a tad more asian inspired like this pictured recipe from Saveur. Yummm!
- 2 Duck Breasts
- 4 Tbsp Honey
- 3 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Sprig Fresh Thyme
- Salt + Pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
With a sharp knife, score the skin of each breast into a diamond pattern. Be sure not to pierce the skin! Season generously with salt + pepper.
Heat an oven proof skillet to med heat and sear the duck breast (skin side down) for 6-8 minutes until the skin is nicely browned. Flip over and cook another 1-2 minutes.
Remove breasts and set aside. Drain all but 2tbsp fat off the pan (you can reserve to make delicious duck fat potatoes later). Place breasts skin side down back into pan and slide into the oven for 5-8 minutes depending on the thickness of the breast.
In the meantime, combine honey and balsamic in a small bowl. Remove duck from the oven and place breasts on a plate. Over low-med heat, pour honey mixture into the pan along with the sprig of thyme and cook for about 5 minutes until thick and bubbly. Remove thyme. Coat breasts in glaze and serve with remaining sauce and your favorite sides! Bon Appétit!
