    cmacooks's Note:

    I first prepared this dish for my parents' anniversary one year; I had boneless duck breast, and, instead of the usual orange sauce, I tried this. It was a hit, and has appeared on several dinner party plates since then. It is not a lo cal dish. I served this with a brown and wild rice side, which had toasted pine nuts for a garnish.

      My family absolutely loved this. Very quick and delicious. Different from the duck and peppercorn sauce I usually serve. I also served this with au gratin potatoes and sauteed spinach with garlic and a nice bordeaux. Will definitely serve again.
