Duck Breast with Griottines Recipe

A sublime marriage of duck breast and Griottines cherries

You will need: (serves 4)
  • 2 duck breast fillets (about 600g)
  • 250g Griottines
  • 50ml Sherry Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Cherry brandy
  • 2 sprigs tarragon
  • Salt and Pepper

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes

  • Score the skin of the duck breasts.
  • Heat a heavy-bottomed frying pan. Cook the duck breasts on medium heat, skin side first. After 8 minutes, turn them over without piercing them and cook for another 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Keep the breasts warm on a plate, covered with aluminium foil.
  • Discard the cooking fat and, in the same frying pan, bring the sherry vinegar to the boil and reduce for 1 minute on a high heat. Add the cherry brandy and the Griottines. Cook for about 5 minutes on a low heat, shaking the pan from time to time to move the fruit without damaging them.
  • Return the duck breasts to the pan, with the cooking juices from the plate. Reheat them with the Griottines for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Cut the breasts into slices. Arrange them on warm plates, sprinkle with chopped tarragon, add the Griottines sauce and serve immediately.
