Easy Crispy Duck Breast

    50 mins

    It's not hard to make crispy duck- you have to score the skin so the fat runs out. I love the combination of the sweet caramelised orange juice and the saltiness from the soy sauce too. I usually serve this delicious crispy duck breast with vegetable and a noodle stir fry or with rice and chinese plum sauce.

    Serves: 2 

    • 2 (400g) duck breasts
    • 1/2 orange, juiced
    • 5 tablespoons soy sauce

    1. Score the skin of the duck breast, making about 4 cuts on each. Put on a baking tray then pour orange juice and soy sauce on top.
    2. Bake in a 180 degrees C oven until cooked through. Baste regularly with own juices.
    3. Remove skin and slice. Heat a frypan and fry gently in its own fat until crispy. Serve immediately.

    I love this recipe!! When the brownie mix first came out it was still runny in the mixture, but I didn't want to cook it for any longer. I tried it and it was gorgeous (still edible even if its runny). I left it in the fridge as recommended and they were gorgeous the next day, chewy and fudgy and yum!! Will definitely use again!  -  14 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
