About this recipe: This is a simple dish, which takes advantage of the well-known marriage of flavours between duck and oranges. It's simple, yet delightful for a quick, weeknight supper. Serve with rice, jacket or mashed potatoes.


Serves: 4 

  • 350g orange marmalade
  • 4 duck breasts
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled, sliced
  • 1 small orange, sliced

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 240 C / Gas 9. Grease a 1.5 litre glass baking dish with a lid.
  2. Spread about 60g of marmalade in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Set the duck breasts in the dish on the marmalade. Poke holes all over the breasts with a fork and spread a layer of marmalade (about 1 tablespoon for each) over the duck breasts. Sprinkle the garlic over the top of the duck meat. Spread the onion and orange slices around the duck breasts in the dish.
  3. Cover the dish and bake in the preheated oven until the duck breasts measure 40 degrees C when measured with an instant-read thermometer, about 15 minutes. Remove the lid, spread about 1 more tablespoon of marmalade over each breast and return to the oven, uncovered. Bake until the meat is medium rare 63 degrees C.
