Cooking duck breast--what temperature for done?

jsteingarten | Jul 14, 2008 11:02 AM

I'm planning to pan sear a piece of duck breast and finish it in the oven. A quick internet search showed wildly varying temperatures for doneness (from 125 to 180 degrees F). At what temperature should I stop cooking the duck for medium rare given the fact that the temperature of the meat will rise after I stop cooking it?

Thanks!!
