My man and I have a 1lb duck breast that I need to cook tomorrow- http://www.rarecuts.com/index.php?pro...
We actually have two that we got in a swag pack from an event, but I imagine one is enough for us. Anyway, I am a decent cook but have NO experience with duck. A lot of the recipes I've seen call for ingredients that we don't have and won't use in the future (fig jam, sherry which I'll open but won't re-use, etc.) I'm looking for something sure-fire, relatively easy since I've never cooked this before, and without a lot of crazy ingredients since I'm in NYC and won't have any subways to aid me (meaning I'll have the local market.)
I would also love input on sides. I'm not a huge lover of duck in general so I rarely order it, which means I'm in the dark about this whole meal! We've had them frozen for a few weeks and I'm ready to give it a shot, but am sort of scared of messing up such a nice piece of meat.
