Why we love this
Our Properly Free Range Duck Breast makes a mouth-watering feast. With crispy skin and a rich buttery texture, the sweet meat has a real depth of flavour.
Our ducks live a properly free-range life, roaming amongst lush pasture, eating a natural diet of forage and whole grains. Our free-range ducks live significantly longer than most other free-range and organic birds.
It's no wonder our properly free range duck breast scooped up one of the country's most prestigious awards - a Great Taste award. Here's what the judges had to say:
"Beautifully tender - full of flavour and succulent."
"Soft and melt in the mouth texture. Just gorgeous."
Each duck breast weighs approximately 250g.
Free Range Duck
Bring the duck breast to room temperature and preheat your oven to 180C.
Carefully pierce the fattiest parts of the skin all over and season the fat with sea salt and pepper.
Take a cold castiron pan and place skin side down. Only turning the duck once the pan is up to full temperature and you hear the fat sizzle.
Turn the breast onto the flesh side and cook for 1 minute until browned.
Once the fat has rendered and the duck breast browned (should take no longer than 5 minutes) pop the pan into your preheated oven and cook for a further 6 minutes.
Remove from the oven and rest for at leats 10 minutes, uncovered.
