How to make it

  • For the duck:
  • Boil the sugar and water for several minutes, until the syrup caramelizes and turns a golden brown color. Add the vinegar, juice, shallots, and chicken stock concentrate and simmer until the sauce is reduced. Add 1 tablespoon of orange zest and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the duck breasts on a work surface, skin side up. Using a sharp knife, score the skin in a grid pattern, going through half the thickness of the skin but not through to the meat.
  • Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the duck breasts, skin side down, and cook until the skin is golden and the fat from the skin has rendered, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn the duck breasts over, season with salt and pepper, and trasnfer the skillet to the oven. Cook until the duck breasts are medium-rare, 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven, remove the duck, cover it with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes. In the meantime, rewarm the sauce. Once hot, take off heat and whisk in the butter.
  • Cut each duck breast on the diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Fan the slices out on each plate, pour the warm prepared sauce over the duck breasts and garnish with orange segments.
  • For the Potato Gallettes:
  • Preheat oven at 425 degrees. Peel the potatoes and use a mandoline to cut them into thin slices. Grab 18-20 slices and swosh them through the melted butter to coat. Shake off access butter and arrange the potato slices, overlapping in a tight circle, on a baking tray lined with parchment.
  • Sprinkle with seasonings, place the tray into the oven and let the taters cook 20 minutes or until the edges of the taters crisp and brown. Serve hot.
