Serves 4

  • 2 breasts of duck, About ¾ lb (350 to 400 g) each
  • 3 ½ fl oz (10 cl) duck stock
  • ¾ oz (20 g) Sarawak pepper
  • ¼ oz (5 g) duck fat
  • fleur de sel


  • Ask the poultry specialist at your supermarket or butcher shop to trim and remove the tendons from the duck breasts
  • Make small incisions in the breast skin without cutting into the meat The incisions must form a criss-cross pattern across the entire outer skin
  • Crush all the pepper with a pestle
  • Cover the outer skin with the crushed pepper: roll the skin over a plate covered with crushed pepper. Push down hard enough so that the pepper gets into the incisions and “adheres” well to the skin
  • Heat the duck fat in a frying pan at low heat
  • Place the breasts skin-side down in the frying pan and let cook for 10 minutes without turning. This is a single-sided cooking technique in which just one side of the breast must be in contact with the heat
  • Remove from time to time any excess duck fat that may overaccumulate in the frying pan
  • Sprinkle a little fleur de sel on the meat-side during cooking
  • Turn the breasts over and sear the meat-side for 3 minutes
  • Remove from heat, set aside and keep warm for 4 minutes. The meat should not sit in its own juice during this time
  • Heat the juices from the duck breasts in a frying pan
  • Serve the breasts cut in slices on previously warmed plates Pour a bit of the juice around the duck breasts
