Pan fried duck with spring greens !

Honestly we never buy duck apart from the takeaway which then is very rare, so when I saw these beauties behind the butchers counter I thought hmmm let’s give it a go …… between you and me I’m so glad I did !! Don’t be put off thinking duck is tricky to cook it really isn’t , I promise you

  • Duck breast (skin on )
  • Butter
  • Garlic oil
  • Shredded green cabbage
  • Spring onion
  • Red pepper ( for colour )
  • Tender stem broccoli
  • Peas (optional )
  • Soy sauce

You need 2 pans 1 to cook the duck breast 1 to stir fry your greens

So season your duck with a little salt and I mean a little , then score the fat on the duck breast just lightly try not to cut through the duck , I was a little heavy handed (as per usual )

Place a knob of butter in the pan and fry the duck breast skin side down ! Now duck is a bit like steak it’s all down to personal preference if you like it a little pink don’t cook it as long once you have cooked it skin side down turn over and leave it to cook on the other side .

In your other pan heat some of the garlic oil , if you don’t have garlic oil don’t worry either add some crushed garlic to olive oil or just use plain olive oil , not a problem !

Add the broccoli peppers shredded cabbage and stir fry until it softens add spring onion and peas if using and then keep stir frying , once you have sir fried the veg add some soy sauce and give it a good stir

Remove the duck breast from the pan and leave to rest for a few minutes

Spoon the stir fried veg onto your plate pop the duck on top and enjoy 😊
