COOKING GUIDELINES

Final cooking times may vary with portion size. (Cooking times are a guideline only. Remove all packaging.)

Pan Fried: 10 – 15 min

  1. Pat breasts dry with a paper towel, score the skin with a sharp knife and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place skin side down in a dry preheated frying pan and cook over medium heat until skin is golden and crispy (approx. 8 – 12 min).
  3. Turn breast over and cook 1 – 2 min.
  4. Allow to rest for 2 – 3 min before serving

Serving Suggestion: Serve with creamy mashed potatoes, root vegetables and a sauce of your choice. Duck breast pairs nicely with plum, orange and berry flavours.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

  • While duck is poultry, it is different from chicken and turkey because of its stronger flavour and richer and darker meat. This means that a well-prepared duck breast eats more like beef, and is still pink in the centre when properly cooked.
  • Duck is often considered to be a fatty meat, but nowadays our ducks are bred leaner, with only a thin layer of fat under the skin.
  • Duck is an easy, versatile and delicious alternative to include in a well-balanced diet. Use to replace pork, beef or chicken in any favourite recipe.
