Instructions

1. Pat duck breast dry and let it air chill in the refrigerator 1-2 hours before cooking.

2. Score the fat on your duck breast in a cross hatch pattern. Salt both sides liberally.

3. Place duck breast in a COLD pan fat side down. Do not grease your pan with oil or butter! Place burner on medium-high.

4. When the fat side is a perfect, crispy golden brown, flip the breast. This takes anywhere between 5-8 minutes depending on stove top/pan you are using, so keep a close eye on the duck!

5. After about another 5 minutes check the internal temperature of the duck breast. For a medium rare finish, we are aiming for an internal temperature of 135°.

6. Rest for 5 minutes, slice, and serve!
