Recipe: Orange duck breast

We continue this friday with a delicious recipe from our Team Norma Ambassador Mette Karin Petersen. Todays recipe balances sour lemon juice with sweet honey, and together with fresh herbs and a lot of orange we get a juicy duck breast with a significant taste of orange. Bon Appétit!

This is what you need (4 servings):

- 4 duck breast
- 1 orange
- 2 dl fresh orange juice
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tbsp honey
- Fresh thyme
- 0,5 tsp cinnamon
- 1 Pomegranate
- Salt
- Freshly grounded pepper

Here's how you do it:

Mix orange juice, lemon juice, honey, fresh thyme, cinnamon, salt and pepper in a pot. Let it boil on low heat for about 10 min, while whisking a few times. Let it boil down to about half the size. Clean and trim the duck breasts and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry the duck breasts on medium heat for about 3-4 min on each side. Set it aside and let it rest for 8-10 min. When you slice the duck breast it should be light pink, not rare. Pour the orange sauce over the duck, sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves, pomegranate seeds and add some fresh sliced orange.

Tip: This dish is great to serve with boiled potatoes or a green kale salad!

Happy hunting & happy cooking
