Pomegranate Duck

Posted: Updated:

Ingredients:

1 pound boneless duck breast, skin removed

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 small shallot, finely chopped

1 cup pomegranate juice

1/4 cup chicken broth,

1 teaspoon cornstarch

2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)

Method of Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Sprinkle duck with salt. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the duck and cook until browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer the duck to a small baking dish and roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 150 degrees F, 8 to 12 minutes for medium, depending on the size of the breast. Transfer to a cutting board; let rest 5 minutes.

3. While the duck is roasting, return the pan to medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add pomegranate juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer; cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir broth and cornstarch in a small bowl until the cornstarch dissolves. Add to the pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. When the duck has finished resting, pour any accumulated juices into the sauce and stir to combine.

4. Thinly slice the duck; serve topped with the pomegranate sauce. Garnish with parsley, if desired
