Created by Daniel J Lestrud, CEC, CCE

10 servings

Ingredients

  • 10  - 6 ounce Duck Breasts, with skin on
  • 4 Shallots, minced
  • ½ cup  Sugar
  • ½ cup White wine, Chablis
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • 4 tea bags of  Bigelow Tea Orange & Spice
  • ½ cup Butter, cubed

Instructions

Score duck breast on skin to form cross hatch marks. Season both sides with salt and peppers and place skin side down in preheated pan. Sear till fat is rendered and skin is crispy. While duck is searing combine sugar, vinegar, wine and tea bags, let cold steep. When duck is crispy turn and let brown on other side. Cook till medium rare. Remove from pan and pour off excess duck fat leaving enough to sweat shallots. Let duck rest. Cook shallots till transparent and add sugar, wine, vinegar and tea mixture. Reduce till sauce becomes thick and syrupy. Add butter and whisk in till fully incorporated. Slice duck on a bias and plate then evenly distribute sauce for each breast.
