1. Duck Breast and Lamb’s Lettuce as Starter

The advantage of this combination is obvious. The duck breast, here a barbarian duck breast, is still a luxury product and still affordable. For four persons you need two duck breasts. The cost is about 16-20 Euro. If you want to impress your guests and/or loved ones, please try the preparation.

2. Prepare Lamb’s Lettuce

Lamb’s lettuce needs careful preparation. Elsewhere in my cooking blog I show the lamb’s lettuce washing in detail. If you are serious, do not take a shortcut, pluck the roots from the lamb’s lettuce, wash the lettuce as shown in the instructions and do NOT spin the lettuce dry.

3. Lamb’s Lettuce Dressing

My lamb’s lettuce dressing consists of a combination of balsamic vinegar/sweet Bavarian mustard/salt/pepper and olive oil. As a Bavarian I appreciate our sweet mustard very much, the dressing to lamb’s lettuce tastes excellent and supports its nutty note.

This lamb’s lettuce dressing simply succeeds and tastes great!

4. Roast Duck Breast

I show the roasting of the duck breast in the video and additionally you can watch the article roast duck breast step by step with picture. A taste hint remains at this point: I fry the vegetables in the duck fat, so it gets a special taste and harmonizes even better with the remaining ingredients.

5. Sweet Kick to the Duck Breast

I like it sweet to the duck. As a change to the cranberries there are caramelized blueberries this time.
