Duck Breasts Garlic Cloves Oranges Honey Ground Black Pepper Salt Fresh Thyme
Cut a criss-cross pattern in the skin of the duck
Pat dry & season with salt & pepper on both sides
Render off the fat by cooking skin-side down
When the skin is crispy and most of the fat is gone - flip them and sear
Then make the sauce - add a bit of duck fat and the rest of the ingredients to a pan
Simmer for 5-10 minutes, until reduced by half
Place duck breasts in an oven safe pan, brush with the sauce and insert a thermometer.
Cook in the middle of the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 5-10 minutes - until inner temp is 137°F (58°C)
Bring out, wrap in foil, and rest for at least 5 minutes.
Slice it and serve with the orange sauce. Enjoy!
