Duck breasts - if it quacks like a duck...

I have two duck breasts in my fridge. Any ideas what I can do with them that's interesting?

Hey Kyles, where have you been? It's been quite a while since you've posted.

Pan fry them, then deglaze with orange juice.

+1 for mini

I usually pan sear them. render down the fat and then save the fat ( so tasty) then glaze it with some honey or you can many a nice orange honey glaze.

i love duck i jsut cant afford it.

I think duck is possibly cheaper in the UK than it is in the US. Although everything here is expensive at the moment! My duck breasts I picked up yesterday were cheaper than the equivalent weight of chicken breasts!

I cannot even buy duck breasts (have to buy the entire animal, whole, frozen). I'm so jealous. I'm with those who are going simple. Put them skin down first. That will give you enough oil to finish the job. At the end you decide. If l'orange doesn't do it for you, find an Asian sauce, and just brush it on at the end, then serve with rice, maybe a veg stir fry (which takes a few minutes and can be done while the duck breasts rest).
