Learn how to cook duck breasts and serve them with the most delicious sweet and tangy orange sauce. Duck breasts are really easy to cook, if you just know the simple steps to follow. And I will teach you how!

2 Duck Breasts 1/2 tsp Salt 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper 1/4 cup Duck Fat 5 Oranges 4 Garlic Cloves 10 sprigs of Rosemary 1/2 cup Honey


Start by cutting 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 on all sides

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 the sauce has reduced by half

Place duck breasts in an oven safe pan, brush with the sauce and insert a thermometer.

Cook the duck breasts 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 and serve with the orange sauce. Enjoy!
