Don't be put off by all the steps, this is a pretty easy recipe. You can also use the glaze and sauce on a whole roast duck, instead of duck breasts. The duck breasts can be seared a day in advance; the pomegranate glaze can be prepared in advance as well; cover and refrigerate separately. When ready to cook, bring the seared duck to room temperature, then roast in a 350-degree oven for 7 minutes or until medium-rare (135 degrees when measured with an instant-read probe thermometer). Serve with quinoa or mashed potatoes. Prep time does not include time to reduce the stock/broth. Originally from the Washington Post.
