Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
1 duck breast

kosher salt

freshly ground black pepper

1/2 pound fresh cherries

3/4 cup Pinot Noir wine

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 ounce Kirsch

the juice and pulp of one clementine

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Allow the duck breast to come to room temperature and then score the fat in a cross-hatch pattern.
  • Season the duck breast well with salt and pepper. Place fat-side down in a cold cast iron skillet. Place the pan over high heat and sear the duck until the fat is rendered out and the skin releases easily from the pan, 8-10 minutes.
  • Flip the breast and cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes. Then place the entire skillet in the oven and cook until the internal temperature is 155 degrees, about 20 minutes.
  • Allow to rest at least five minutes before slicing and serving with the Pinot-Cherry sauce and couscous.
  • In the meantime, place the cherries, wine, thyme and sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and allow to reduce to about 1/2 the amount of liquid.
  • Stir in the Kirsch and the clementine juice and pulp and continue to cook another minute or so. Allow to cool and serve over the duck breast.
