How to best cook fresh duck
Duck has a rich, luxurious taste, fatty skin and an unexpectedly lean meat underneath. This makes it an excellent protein for healthy suppers, but it also means that duck, especially the breast portion, is prone to becoming overcooked and dry without proper techniques. With lean meat like duck, we recommend two methods to keep the meat moist and succulent: quick, high heat, or low and slow. A pan-seared duck breast pairs beautifully with fresh, herby salads and plenty of citruses to cut through the rich, gamey flavour. Try seasoning the duck and searing the breast skin side down for a few minutes until a crust forms, then flipping and immediately dropping to low heat to finish off the cooking. For Marylands and whole ducks, a confit cook — where the bird is roasted for hours at a low temperature in a bath of oil or fuck fat — produces an incredibly moist result, with tender meat falling off the bone at the end of the bake.
