Grilled Duck Breasts With Red Wine and Orange Sauce
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
13 ingredients
6 servings
From the November, 2008 Wine Enthusiast, this recipe is from French cookbook author Sophie Dudemaine's newest book, "Ducasse Made Sinple" which is based on Ducasse's encyclopedic "Grande Livre de Cuisine". Recommended wine pairing is a 2005 Reserve Cabernet Franc from Lieb Wine Cellars in Long Island (just threw that in for the serious wine enthusiasts out there). Yet to try but looks easy and tasty...DH clipped from the magazine and handed it over to me at breakfast, meaning, "Let's try this one!"... :-) What sets this apart is that there is pumpkin pie spice in the sauce and on the rub for the meat. Great to serve this with crispy potatoes or a creamy potato gratin and grean beans with shallots. Note: per a review that indicated the cooking time was incorrect, the "prep" time is listed as 15 but the "cook" time at an hour. I haven't changed anything, but wanted to indicate this in the recipe description to avoid confusion to others in the future. So the preparation of the sauce and the duck breasts can take approximately an hour in total.
