To taste


  • Whisk
  • Frying pan
  • Tongs


Pat the duck breast dry using paper towels.

Using a sharp knife, cut a cross-hatch pattern into the skin of the fillets, cutting only the skin and not the flesh. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a frying pan over medium high heat and place the duck breasts skin-side down and let cook undisturbed for 5 minutes.

Flip the duck and allow to cook for another 5-6 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 120°F. Remove duck from pan and let rest for 5 minutes, allowing the internal temperature to reach 130°F.

While the duck is resting, whisk together the honey and balsamic vinegar in the same pan used to cook the duck and let simmer for a few minutes until it thickens slightly to form a syrup-like texture, season to taste with salt and pepper.

Add duck back into the sauce mixture, spooning the sauce over the duck to coat, slice and serve with your favorite sides.
