Duck a la Orange

Preparation time
Cooking time


4 duck breast
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ tablespoon salt
¼ bunch thyme
1 tsp five spice


1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup fresh orange juice (from 1 to 2 oranges)
segments of one orange
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 to 4 tablespoons duck or chicken stock or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon fine julienne of fresh orange zest, removed with a vegetable peeler


  1. Season the duck breast with the spiced salt and sugar for 1 hour then remove the cure.
  2. Place the duck breast skin side down in a pan and slowly caramelize.
  3. Turn over and continue to cook when medium rare remove from the pan and rest.

For the sauce

  1. Cook sugar in a dry 1-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, undisturbed, until it begins to melt. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally with a fork, until sugar melts into a deep golden caramel. 
  2. Add orange juice, vinegar, and salt (use caution; mixture will bubble and steam vigorously) and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until caramel is dissolved. Remove syrup from heat.
  3. Add enough stock to pan that you cooked the duck breast in to total 1 cup liquid.
  4. Stir together butter and flour to form a beurre manié. Bring pan juices to a simmer in a 1- to 2-quart heavy saucepan, then add beurre manié, whisking constantly to prevent lumps.
  5. Add orange syrup and zest and simmer, whisking occasionally, until sauce is thickened slightly and zest is tender, about 5 minutes.
  6. Serve with duck.
