Roasted duck magret sauce bigarade
Step 1: Orange sauce
Remove the rind of the bitter oranges, then squeeze all the oranges. Slice the rind into 1/2 x 3 1/3 inch (1 x 8 cm) strips, blanch, and cool. Stew the juice from the oranges with the rind and the sugar. Bring to a simmer, and continue to cook until syrupy.
Step 2: Duck
Score the skin of the duck breast without touching the meat. Season the duck with salt on both sides. Heat the duck fat in a pan. When it’s hot, place the duck into the pan, skin-side down. Cook for about 3-4 minutes, until the skin is nicely browned, then flip the duck over and sear on the flesh side. Place on a rack and roast in the oven for 5 minutes for medium, 7 for well-done.
