DIRECTIONS

  • For the duck, mix the cinnamon and the sugar.
  • Score the fat of the duck breast and season with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the cinnamon sugar over the top and press into the fat.
  • Set aside in the fridge to marinate for 4 to 12 hours.
  • For the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat until the sauce has reduced by at least half, to a syrupy consistency.
  • Sear the duck breast in a non-stick pan over a medium heat until the fat has rendered and the skin is crispy, about 4 minutes.
  • Transfer the duck breasts to a 375°F oven to finish cooking for about 7 minutes.
  • Remove the breasts from the oven and set aside in a warm place to rest for a couple of minutes before slicing very thinly.
  • Serve the sauce with the duck.
