Organic Duck Breast with Ginger Carrot Puree, Ginger Orange Sauce and Sautéed Apples and Sweet Potatoes
Organic Duck Breast
2-3 organic apples
2-3 sweet potatoes
Ginger Orange Sauce:
1.5 large shallots
2 cloves garlic
2 organic oranges
1/3 gal orange juice
1/8 cup brown sugar
Ginger Carrot Puree
5 organic white and orange carrots
1 oz ginger
To make the dish: Heat the skillet over medium-high heat. The duck has a lot of natural fat, so there is no need for oil. Add salt and pepper. Cook the organic duck breast for 2-3 minutes each side until golden. Place it in oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees and place back in skillet. Add 5-6 soup spoons of the ginger orange sauce and let it simmer a bit until it gets thicker and hot. Sautéed the organic apple and sweet potatoes with some salt. Heat up the puree in a separate skillet. Plate the sauteed apples and sweet potatoes and the duck above them. Puree on the side and drizzle the sauce over the duck and around the plate.
Ginger Orange Sauce: For 1 quarts of sauce: In a large pot, sautee 1,5 large shallots sliced thin, 2 minced garlic cloves, 2 organic oranges, 1/3 gallon of orange juice, 1/8 cup of brown sugar. It should have a smooth consistency. Set aside.
Ginger Carrot Puree: Blend 5 organic carrots(white and orange) with 1oz of Ginger. Makes 1 quart.
