Ingredients

How to make it

  • Wash duck breast pieces.
  • Immerse in milk and marinate at least one hour.
  • The pieces must be submerged, so if not, add more milk as needed until they are.
  • This marinade helps lessen the 'wild' taste of duck, and helps tenderize the meat even more.
  • In the meantime,
  • Prepare the Mirepoix:
  • Place into a baking dish
  • Roast in the oven at 350*F until the veggies are nearly tender, and the sauce begins to render.
  • DO NOT throw out the mirepoix, as it will be added to the dish, not only for flavor, but economy!
  • (Many chefs do not 'serve' the Mirepoix, but use only the sauce which comes from it; they toss the rest. In many recipes, I don't toss it!)
  • Place the Mirepoix under each duck breast, and sprinkle each with the garlic, oregano and Italian spice.
  • Roast in the oven slowly at 325*F, basting often.
  • Cover the roasting pan for the first 30 minutes of cooking, then remove the cover to help brown the duck breasts.
  • For the Reduction.
  • Combine all the ingredients listed, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring very often, until the juices are reduced by 1/2.
  • When serving, drizzle some of the reduction on the plate, then over the duck.
  • Served with a Chef's salad and roasted baby potatoes, this makes a delightful main!!

    I recently prepared duck breast as well, and used a Balsamic Vinegar, liquid honey and red wine reduction that was amazing.
