A simple and lovely recipe that looks really good, this dish is very suitable as a main on a special date for an evening for two.
Duck breast is a flavourful meat, and to best balance the gamey taste we seasoned it with five spice powder. We’ll have to add that frying the skin to a crispy golden brown finish while basting the duck breast with its fats keeping the meat moist.
Combining MARIGOLD 100% Apple Cranberry Juice, honey, fresh pomegranate seeds for the sauce, there’s a balance of acidity with a touch of sweetness, and by finishing it will some butter we end up having that velvety finish.
The most amazing thing about this recipe is, all these can be done within half an hour!
