Duck Breasts with Honey Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 2 boneless duck breasts
    • 2 oz. (50 g) yellow onion, chopped
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 3 tbsp. (approx. 60 g) honey
    • Fresh rosemary, sage and bay leaf, as needed
    • salt and pepper

Method :

    1. Heat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
    2. Score the skin and fat on each duck breast without cutting into the meat, and season with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet until hot and cook the duck, skin side down first, until crisp. Transfer the duck breasts to a baking pan, and add the garlic clove, the onion and the herbs. Roast for about 10 minutes; the duck breasts should still be soft and pink inside.
    3. Let them rest for a few minutes, covered in tin foil, before slicing.
    4. Spoon the fat from the baking pan and then add the honey. When you have obtained the desired thickness, strain the sauce through a sieve.
    5. Serve the duck breasts, covered with the honey sauce.
