Gressingham Duck Breasts x 2

£12.25

Our Gressingham Duck Breasts come from a unique breed, a cross between the flavoursome Mallard and the larger Pekin Duck first developed in the UK back in the late 1980s. Rich and succulent, these plump farmed ducks are now a firm favourite with top chefs and home cooks alike. These meaty breast fillets come in packs of 2 (approx weight 450-500g), skin on and ready to cook. Delicious served pink. Supplied frozen. See below for how to cook.

How to cook

  1. Defrost the duck breasts in the fridge overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas mark 6.
  3. Take the duck breasts out of the fridge and remove all packaging.
  4. Pat the skin with kitchen towel to remove excess moisture. Score and season with salt and black pepper.
  5. Heat a frying pan over a medium to high heat without oil. Place the breasts in the pan skin-side down and cook for 5 minutes until the skin turns golden brown; turn over and seal the meat for 1 minute. Pour off excess fat regularly.
  6. Transfer to a roasting tray and cook in the middle of the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, depending on how you like your duck cooked. Remove from the oven and rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
