Medium Rare Duck Breast


A duck breast is every bit as tasty as a red steak. It is, however, much easier to cook well, and it works great with many different dishes. From classic French to spicy Asian cuisine.


Duck Breast

300 gram Duck breast

1 tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Thyme, dried

1 tsp. Pepper


Cook the duck breast

Season the duck breast on both sides with salt, thyme, and pepper.

Place the duck breast on the pan, skin side down. Fry for 20 minutes on the skin side.

Flip the duck breast and cook for a final 10 minutes on the other side.

Remove the duck breast from the pan and let it rest for 5 minutes.


A duck breast typically weighs 300 g. But they can weigh anything from 200 g to 400 g. If your duck breast weighs 200 g, give it 5 minutes less on the meat side and if it weighs 400 g, give it 5 minutes more. But make sure the skin side is still cooked for 20 minutes, to ensure the skin gets nice and crispy.
