Seared Duck Breast with Pinot Noir Sauce

Duck and Pinot Noir are a classic combination. Look for Muscovy duck breasts for this recipe; they are generally larger and have a lower fat-to-meat ratio than the breasts of other duck varieties. Jars of demi-glace are sold in specialty-food stores. Serve the duck with our Potato and Apple Galette plus Savoy Cabbage and Turnips (see related recipes at left), and pour your best Pinot Noir.

My husband and I made this the other night with some fresh wild duck he shot that day - we were IN HEAVEN as we savored every bite. Using wild as opposed to domestic duck (which has all the fat) didn't seem to be a problem at all. Aside from the sauce taking a while longer than the recipe indicated, this was amazingly easy and inexpensive to make; and I was able to get the demi-glace at a natural grocer just fine, which I was worried about. Just whipped up some mashed potatoes and sauted vegetables to go with. You will not regret trying this one out!
Pros: Quick, Easy, Impressive, Will Make Again

My boyfriend and I looooved this dinner. The duck is incredible and the demi glace makes the sauce so flavorful. I would definitely recommend this for a nice romantic meal. I served the duck over mashed potatoes with the glazed carrots on the side.. yum!
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
