3. Duck Breast Salad as a Starter
The advantage of this combination is obvious.
The muscovy duck breast is still a luxury product and yet affordable.
For four people you need two duck breasts.
The cost point is around 16-20 euros.
If you want to impress guests and/or loved ones, please dare to prepare it.
4. Prepare Lamb’s Lettuce for Duck Breast Salad
Lamb’s lettuce requires careful handling in the preparation.
Elsewhere in my cooking blog, I show you how to wash lamb’s lettuce in detail.
If you are serious, don’t take any shortcuts, pull the roots off the lamb’s lettuce, wash the lettuce as shown in the instructions and DO NOT spin dry the lettuce.
5. Salad Dressing for Duck Breast Salad
My lamb’s lettuce dressing consists of a combination of balsamic vinegar/sweet Bavarian mustard/salt/pepper and olive oil.
As a Bavarian, I really appreciate our sweet mustard, the dressing for lamb’s lettuce tastes great and supports its nutty note.
This lamb’s lettuce dressing is easy to make and tastes great!Dressing tip from chef Thomas Sixt
6. Roast Duck Breast
I had already linked the post above and remind you here 🙂
A taste note remains at this point:
I like to fry the vegetables in duck fat, so they get a special flavor and harmonize even better with the other ingredients.
7. Sweet Kick to Crispy Duck Breast
I like it sweet with the duck.
Here you will also find a variant with caramelized blueberries.
8. Tip: Prepare Duck Breast in the Oven
Another variant of duck breast preparation takes place in the oven.
Prepare the duck breast, season, fry on both sides and then finish cooking in the oven at approx. 200°C hot air.
I show a similar recipe, but with a duck as the main course, in the article Duck breast from the oven.
