White Brick Wall

To create these incredible Roasted Duck Breast, gather the following ingredients:

  • 2 boneless Roasted Duck Breasts

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 4 medium-sized russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish

  • 1 cup red wine

  • 1/2 cup duck fat

  • 2 shallots, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Roasted Duck Breast Instructions:

Seasoning Sensation: Start by generously seasoning the Roasted Duck Breasts with a pinch of salt and a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. These simple yet crucial seasonings will enhance the natural flavors of the duck breast and ensure a delicious result.

Searing Elegance: In a hot skillet, place the Roasted Duck Breasts skin side down, allowing them to sear for approximately 5-7 minutes until the skin turns golden and crispy. Flip and sear the other side briefly. This initial searing locks in the juices, rendering the duck breast tender and succulent.

Herb-Infused Aromatics: During the searing process, add minced garlic and fresh thyme sprigs to the skillet. Allow the aromatic herbs to infuse their flavors into the duck breast, creating an irresistible aroma.

Roasting Revelation: Transfer the seared Roasted Duck Breasts to a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C). Roast for 10-15 minutes, depending on your desired level of doneness. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 130-135°F (54-57°C).

Potato Perfection: While the duck breast is roasting, focus on preparing your roasted potatoes. Peel and cut the russet potatoes into chunks, ensuring uniform sizes for even cooking.

Olive Oil Elegance: In a separate baking dish, toss the potato chunks with two tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, infusing them with a savory flavor that complements the duck perfectly.

Roasting Magic: Roast the potatoes in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for 30-40 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy on the outside while remaining tender on the inside. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs for an aromatic touch.

Wine Elegance: In a saucepan, combine one cup of red wine and finely chopped shallots. Simmer over medium heat until the wine is reduced by half, infusing it with the shallot's sweet aroma.

Luxurious Duck Fat: Add half a cup of duck fat to the reduced wine mixture, whisking gently until the fat melts and combines with the wine, creating a rich and velvety sauce.

Balancing Act: Pour in half a cup of chicken broth and continue to simmer until the sauce thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste, ensuring a perfect balance of flavors.
