How to Cook a Duck Breast

How to Cook a Duck Breast

Today, we're going to show you how to properly cook a duck breast. By doing this, you can eliminate 70% of the fat and still have the delicious, crisp skin that adds to the flavor of your meat. The secret is to score the skin and saute the breast skin-side down over low heat so the fat has the chance to render or melt out of the skin.

First, make sure to thaw the duck breast and remove it from the package. Pat your duck breast dry with a paper towel. Score the skin into 1/4" intervals and be careful not to cut into the breast meat. Rotate the breast and score it again, making a crisscross pattern. Season with salt and pepper or your preferred seasoning or marinade.

Preheat a griddle to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, or a non-stick pan to low/medium-low. Place your breast skin-side down and cook for 8 - 12 minutes or until the fat is rendered and the skin is crisp and brown. Remember, low and slow is the way to go! Turn the breast over and cook 1-2 more minutes on the other side.

At this point, the breast can be refrigerated and finished at a later time if you choose. To finish the duck breast, place it in the 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 5-6 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the duck breast rest 4 - 5 minutes before slicing. The temperature will continue to rise during the resting period and should reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

The final cooking times may vary with the size of the breast, but a properly cooked duck breast will still be pink in the middle. Now that your duck breast is finished, slice on the diagonal and it's ready to use in a variety of dishes!

Details

Brimming with juicy, savory flavor, this Maple Leaf Farms 8 - 9 oz. roasted garlic style boneless duck breast is the epitome of healthy and hearty, high-quality meat. Its strong, meaty flavor sets it apart from other poultry and serves as a uniquely tantalizing option that will upgrade and diversify your menu and captivate your guests. This duck is an excellent source of protein and minerals and features a thick, fatty skin that encourages the deep and rich flavor for which duck is known. The white pekin ducks from Maple Leaf Farms are humanely raised on a cage-free farm and aren't treated with additional hormones and antibiotics to synthetically promote growth. Ensuring top-notch quality, this breast comes pre-seasoned with roasted garlic to enhance your salads, stir-fry, and signature entrees.

Treat your guests to a colorful duck penne pasta with basil, black olives, and tomato or add a subtle smokiness by grilling it, thinly slicing it, and serving it with barbecue lime sauce as a unique take on southwest fajitas! Activate your culinary creativity by serving this duck as a topping on nachos, pizza, and salads. Conversely, for an extra-savory homestyle dish, wrap the duck breast in bacon and sprinkle with cloves and chili pepper to complement the roasted garlic seasoning. Pair with a side of buttery Yukon Gold potatoes and steamed vegetables for a complete, mouthwatering meal. Before cooking, first thaw the meat and score in 1/4" intervals, rotating and scoring it to form a crisscross pattern. Then, place it on a preheated pan on medium low, cooking for approximately 8 to 12 minutes. Flip the meat and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Place the meat in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 3 to 4 minutes, and then wait at least 2 minutes before cutting. The meat is ready to eat when its internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Add your choice ingredients, plate, and serve!
