Here is a really quick and fancy way to serve wild or farm raised duck. Juice the oranges, do not buy orange juice.
Seared Duck Breasts with Orange
- 8 wild duck breasts or 4 farm raised some fat trimmed off
- 1 tbsp finely minced ginger
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 oz Grand Marnier
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp butter if using wild duck
Melt butter in a frying pan large enough to hold all duck in one layer. Add ginger and fry until fragrant then add duck and sear breasts on each side until very rare over medium high heat. If using farm raised sear fat side of breasts, then add ginger and sear other side. Add liquor and light on fire. Saute meat until fire goes out then remove to a dish and add juice and balsamic to pan. Bring to a simmer and reduce by half. Place meat back into sauce with any juices on plate and quickly coat in sauce. Serve immediately drizzled with pan sauce.
