Prep: 5 minutes |
Cook 25 minutes
· 4 fresh duck breasts, (if frozen, thaw)
· 1 tablespoon salt
· 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
· 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
· 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
· 1 cup orange marmalade
· 1/2 cup honey
· 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (I prefer Grand Marnier)
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
Rinse and pat duck breasts dry, and lightly score the skin surface several times with a knife (only in the inner skin area so it remains intact with breast). In a small bowl, combine seasonings and season the duck breasts all over.
Insert a thermometer at an angle in the thickest part of a breast.
Turn down heat to 375 degrees, and place the duck in the oven roasting for about 25 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together glaze ingredients. About 15 minutes before duck is finished cooking, liberally brush duck breasts with glaze, and continue cooking 10 more minutes (checking to ensure breast is at 165 degrees).
Remove duck breasts and tent with tinfoil for 5 minutes. (I serve mine with steamed brown rice, and broccoli.) - Enjoy!
