Cooking Seared Duck? Help and ideas!

cgxy96 | Feb 25, 2014 04:12 PM

Hi guys, so my bf's birthday is coming up and I'm thinking of making seared duck breast (medium) which is his ultimate favorite dish!

What sauce would u recommend? I did a bit of research online and the common ones are berry based sauce, fig sauce, pinot noir and (cherry) port wine sauce? Personally, I love chimichurri sauce but I realise that it usually goes with steak, what do think of serving it with seared duck?

I'm planning to do 2 practise dish before cooking it on his birthday! Anyway, I never cooked duck or seared any meat before,

can someone GUIDE me through this, from choosing the duck to trimming and cleaning it and cooking it?

Anyway I don't have a car, so my source of ingredients are from Wholefoods, Target, Marina, Ranch 99 and a small farmers market. Hopefully they sell the ingredients that I need! Also, any idea what kind of veggies to go with this dish too? All ur help will be greatly appreciated!
