    GoIrish's Note:

    A pretty simple recipe to prepare boneless duck breasts. Good flavor, goes well with a wild rice or mashed potatoes.

    1. 1
      Score skin side of duck breast using a sharp knife to make criss-cross cuts just into the fat layer.
    2. 2
      Sprinkle skin side with salt and pepper to taste, massaging spice into the cuts in the skin.
    3. 3
      Mix orange juice, lemon zest and ginger in a shallow dish.
    4. 4
      Add duck skin-side down to the marinade and spoon a little over the meat-side of the breast.
    5. 5
      Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, occasionally shift the duck and spoon more over the back side.
    6. 6
      Pre-heat a lightly-greased non-stick skillet to medium-high heat.
    7. 7
      Sear the duck skin-side down, about 4-5 minutes. You may need to cover the dish as the fat will begin to spatter.
    8. 8
      Turn the duck over, and spoon a bit of the marinade into the skillet and over the skin side. Sear flesh side down another 2-3 minutes.
    9. 9
      Add about 1/4 cup of the marinade to the skillet and transfer to oven pre-heated to 400 degrees.
    10. 10
      Cook an additional 6-10 minutes depending on desired doneness. Depending on thickness 6 minutes will be more medium-rare, 10 will bring it closer to medium-well.
    11. 11
      Remove from oven, and transfer duck to a plate. The marinade left in the skillet and be stirred with the duck fat a bit drizzled onto the finished breasts.
