Instructions

Wash and use kitchen towel to pad dry the duck breasts. Place the duck breasts in a big bowl and put in all the above mentioned ingredients and seasonings. Mix all the ingredients well. Cover the bowl with cling film and put into the fridge to marinate for a few hours. Once the duck breasts have been marinated for a few hours, heat a pan and make sure its hot enough to sear the duck breasts. Always skin side down. Meanwhile, turn on the oven at 180 200 C. Cook the skin side for about 8-10 minutes. Then turn the other side and cook for about 5-10. Once both side are seared, put the duck breasts into the pre-heated oven and cook for about 25 minutes depending if youd like to have the meats slightly medium cooked. If you prefer them to be cooked well done, leave in the oven slightly longer. Check the duck breasts from time to time and and brush the marinate on each side to keep them moist and to have nice golden brown colour. Once the breasts are cooked, slice the breasts thinly and serve on the plate with its juice.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Cooking Tips

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • There are two types of cinnamon. The more expensive and rarer type is Ceylon cinnamon (considered to be "true cinnamon"). The cinnamon most common in North America is cassia cinnamon. Though the flavor is certainly similar, Ceylon cinnamon is said to be more subtle yet also more complex.

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.
