Duck Breast With Fried Apples

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
YIELD: 6 filets




  • Heat the honey and cup of vinegar in a small saucepan for three to four minutes over a low heat.
  • Remove from the heat and add the cinnamon, ginger and coriander. Season.
  • Let the marinade cool.
  • Make diagonal cuts with a sharp knife in the duck breasts (to facilitate the absorption of the marinade).
  • Place the breasts side by side in a shallow baking tray and pour the marinade over them.
  • Cover the pan with plastic wrap and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for two to three hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C.
  • Drain off the marinade into a small saucepan and heat until reduced to half.
  • Put the fillets in a baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile heat the butter (or oil) in a nonstick pan and cook the apples for about 10 minutes until they acquire a golden color, turning them on all sides.
  • Season and dust with cinnamon and sugar, and allow to cook until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the rest of the apple cider and remove from heat.
  • When the fillets are done, cover the baking tray with aluminium foil or baking paper and allow to settle for 12-13 minutes before serving, to help soften them.
  • Serve with the apples and the sauce.
