Once again, I had the privilege of having been served a wonderful home-cooked meal prepared by our friend Steve in the cozy Silverlake cottage-style house he shares with his wife Danielle. Steve impressed me with the most amazing duck breast I had in a long time. Marinated in a herb-infused blood orange ‘bath’ and cooked to perfection, it was a very happy experience for my palate. And how refreshing to find, for once, something different than beef or chicken on my plate!
That’s how he prepared the duck breasts (for 4 people):
Trim 4 breasts and place, skin side up, in a dish. Squeeze
the juice of three or four blood oranges over them so the the meat underneath is immersed. Then zest the oranges over the breasts, and sprinkle with a few fresh thyme leaves, and some chopped fresh rosemary. Let sit in the fridge for a few hours.
Cook about 6-7 minutes on both sides. Remove and let rest for at least five minutes.
Steve served the duck breasts with vegetables braised in olive oil.
Thanks for sharing, Steve!
