duck breasts

recipe from Richard Thompson (jrt@cix).

my usual method of cooking duck breast fillets is:

sprinkle them with pepper and rub in the grated peel of an orange (one orange would suffice for two portions).  Moisten the side without the fat with a little olive oil and put, fatty side uppermost, in a small baking tray in a hot oven, about 200 C.

after about 15 minutes take it out of the oven, pour over the juice from the orange and a tablespoonful of sherry, and return to the oven for another 15 minutes. It should be cooked by then but stick a fork in to check. If it does need a little longer in the oven add a little more sherry to stop it drying out.
