Duck with Chinese five spice
- Prep Time:
- Cook Time:
- Ready Time:
- Organic duck breast
- Chinese 5 spice powder
- Fresh fig compote
- Roasted leeks to accompany
Take your duck breast and score it.
Now coat on the skin side with the 5 spice powder.
In a medium low heat pan place the duck skin side down, this is where we want to render that fat off the duck slowly while crisping up the skin. You going to cook this for about 5-7 min where you will see the fat starting to come off the duck now turn it over and finish another 3 min on the other side, now finish it in a 325 degree oven for 7-8 min.
You want the duck to be pink but if you want it to cook it all the way through you can but pink brings out the real duck flavor for this particular preparation.
Take the duck out and let it REST for at least 7-10 min, if you slice it now all the juices run out and you have a dry duck and we have all been to those parties before.
Now slice the duck as I’ve shown you but not too thin or it will lose its heat.
Plate and serve with some roasted leaks .
Drizzle with a little olive oil and put a few grains on kosher salt on each piece of duck as this will make all the difference.
Serve with fig compote on the side so you can add as much as you like.
Enjoy kids it’s DUCK SEASON!
