Crispy Caramelised Duck


  • 2 duck breasts

  • 3 tbsp plain flour

  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • Good sprinkling of salt

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • Juice of 1 large orange

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • Good slosh (about 1.5 tbsp) balsamic vinegar


  1. Cut the duck breasts thinly, keeping the skin on, so that each piece of meat has a slither of skin and fat attached.

  2. Mix the flour, salt and pepper together and use it to coat the duck.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan.

  4. When the oil is very hot, fry the duck for approximately 2 minutes, until crispy (this can be done in batches, then fried off again together before the next step).

  5. Add the remaining ingredients (orange juice, brown sugar and balsamic vinegar).

  6. Simmer gently for 3 minutes then serve.


Goes well with a zesty chilli rice. Cook your rice as normal, then fry a chopped chilli and zest of half an orange, then add the cooked rice, fry off and mix well.
