Duck Breast with Cumquats

Cumquats are one of the best little fruits, often misunderstood. Goes with duck-like a marriage made in heaven!

Preserved cumquats are available to buy in a gourmet food shop.



  1. Prepare and cook duck breasts, (see Cooking Duck Breast Portions from Duck Recipes No. 2)
  2. Pour the duck fat into a suitable container and place the pan back on the stove on high heat. Deglaze the pan with white wine and let it reduce down by half.
  3. Add cumquat liquid, the cumquats and allow to reduce to a nice syrupy sauce. Add the herbs, and correct to taste.
  4. Slice duck breasts 2-3 times on an angle and arrange on warmed plates.
  5. Pour a little of the sauce around and serve.

This dish would be great served on top of a rosti potato.
