Duck breasts with Calvados apple sauce

    40 min

    Succulent duck breasts, butter, apples and calvados - just four ingredients make up this fabulous dish. I just made this recipe tonight and it was so good... I had my husband's seal of approval who could not wait to eat it while I was taking the picture. The sweet and sour taste is very nice. I think I'll do it again for Christmas.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 duck breasts
    • 20g salted butter
    • 4 firm apples, sliced
    • 200ml Calvados

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a nonstick frying pan, add the breasts to the pan skin side down (no need to add any fat) and cook over high heat for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 more minutes on each side.
    2. Melt the salted butter in a separate frying pan on high heat, add the apples and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.
    3. Reduce to low heat and cook the apples for 10 minutes.
    4. Reduce heat to very low and deglaze the pan with Calvados. (Do not add the Calvados near a flame! Remove the pan from the cooker and add the Calvados away from any flame then return the pan to the cooker.)
    5. Serve the duck breasts immediately with the Calvados sauce.
