Crispy Duck Breast
with Strawberry & Orange Glaze

Serves 4 - (10 ounce portions)

4 Duck Breasts (6-8 oz. each)
16 oz. Strawberry Orange Glaze

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add the duck breasts skin side down. Fat will start to liquefy and render out. When skin is golden and firm (crispy), remove the breasts from the pan and reserve until ready for final cooking. Duck breasts can be cooked on the grill in an oven at 360° or in a sauté pan until desired degree of doneness. Once the breasts are cooked, place in the center of the plate and top with 4 oz. of glaze.
