Duck Breasts

1. Add duck breasts to pan and distribute the marinade evenly over all sides of duck. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 3 hours.

2. Preheat grill to high. Cutting only through the skin and fat, score the duck breasts with five diagonal lines.

3. Grill duck, skin side down, for 1 to 2 minutes just to caramelize skin side.

4. Use a water sprayer to reduce flare up from the duck fat. Duck will colour very quickly.

5. Remove promptly from grill and transfer duck, skin side down to a small roasting pan.

6. Place on upper rack of BBQ. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until breast is still very rare.

7. Drain off duck fat and turn breasts over. Cook another 3 to 4 minutes until duck breast is medium rare.

8. Cover with foil and let rest for five minutes before slicing. Reserve pan drippings as sauce.


1. Combine ingredients for marinade in a medium shallow pan until blended.

2. See the duck for further cooking instructions.
