To make delicious duck breasts, you need to have some chili, mint, and lime. That's why I love this recipe - so simple and so delicious! —Anna Vorobiova
What You'll Need
mint leaves, finely sliced
chili pepper, finely diced
5 peppers mix
salt and pepper to taste
Make a cross incision in the duck breasts skin. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme.
Place breasts in a cold non-stick pan, skin side down; don't use oil. Fry over medium heat for about 8 minutes to drain the fat and turn the skin golden.
Preheat oven to 180 C/350 F. Transfer breasts to a wire rack and place on the middle oven shelf. Cook for 10-15 minutes, depending on the doneness you want.
In the meantime, prepare the dressing. Drain fat from the pan in which the duck was cooked. Heat some olive oil, add chili, mint, sauté for a few seconds. Then squeeze out the lime juice, stir again and remove from heat.
Remove duck breasts from the oven and leave for 5 minutes at room temperature. Then slice, pour-over mint-chili dressing, and enjoy!
