Pan-Seared Duck Breast

Ingredients


  • 4 duck meat (breast), 4 to 5 ounces (112 to 140g) each
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (4 fluid ounces; 120ml)
  • 1 1/2 cups homemade chicken stock or store-bought stock combined with 1 tablespoon powdered gelatin (12 fluid ounces; 360ml)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 ounces; 60g)
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) freshly squeezed orange juice from 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Method:

  1. With a sharp knife, gently score Ernest Soulard Duck Meat (breast) skin in a tight crosshatch pattern, keeping the scores 1/8 inch apart. If you prefer a little fat left on the breasts after cooking, just barely score the skin; to render more fat, score more deeply, taking care not to expose the flesh.
  2. Season duck meat (breast) with salt, heavily on the skin side and lightly on the flesh side.
  3. Place duck breasts, skin side down, in a large, cold sauté pan. Place pan over low to medium-low heat. To keep the edges from curling up, press duck breasts down with the help of a smaller sauté pan. After about 5 minutes, the fat should begin to gently bubble. If the fat is either silent or spitting, adjust heat accordingly. Maintain the gentle bubble of fat, pouring out excess rendered fat throughout the cooking process, until much of the fat has rendered, skin is golden brown, and duck’s internal temperature is 125°F (52°C), about 15 minutes.
  4. Increase heat to medium and further brown skin if needed, about 1 minute, before flipping and cooking on the flesh side. For medium-rare meat, cook until breast registers 130°F (54°C) on an instant-read thermometer, about 1 to 2 minutes. Continue cooking until duck registers 140°F (60°C) for medium or 155°F (68°F) for well-done. Remove duck from pan and set aside to rest.
  5. For the Pan Sauce: Over high heat, deglaze sauté pan with white wine. Scrape up any brown bits stuck to pan and let wine reduce until pan is almost dry and only 1 to 2 tablespoons remain, about 2 minutes. Add chicken stock and let reduce by half, until sauce is sticky and rich, about 2 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and swirl in butter until melted and evenly incorporated. Season sauce with orange juice and zest, salt, and black pepper. Serve with duck breast.

About Ryan’s Grocery

Ryan’s Grocery is Singapore’s only full-service organic butchery and allergen-friendly specialist grocery store. The company’s journey began in July 2015 when founders Sebastian and Wendy Chia learnt of their son’s – Ryan – intolerance to gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, egg, and yeast. They searched local markets for products and produce, and even made personal trips internationally to look for a range of dietary items to support his needs.

It was then they saw a demand for such a specialty online grocery and Ryan’s Grocery was born. Ryan’s Grocery now services the local community, discerning shoppers and those with dietary intolerances with an all-inclusive range of organic meats from our specialty butchery, gluten-free products, and other related items with grocery delivery options.

In December 2019, the brand launched its first overseas flagship store in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its flagship outlet in Singapore with ‘Ryan’s Grocery’ and ‘Ryan’s Kitchen’ opened in Great World in December 2020, spanning a total of 4,200 sq ft. In 2022, Ryan’s Grocery was awarded “Gourmet Retailer of the Year” and “Best Meat & Seafood Retailer” in Singapore by World Gourmet Summit & Tatler Asia respectively.
