Here is the perfect dish when you want to make something extra special. It's simple but looks fantastic.

Recipe By: midnight kitchen (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/111)
Serves 4 Cook: 20 min

Ingredients

Duck breast fillets 2
Red wine 50ml
Soy sauce 50ml
Mirin 50ml
White grapes 1 bunch
Salt & pepper as you like

Method

1
Pierce the duck breast with a fork. Put the red wine, soy sauce and mirin into a ziploc bag and put in the duck to marinate. Seal and keep aside for 2-3 hours.
2
In a very hot frying pan, put the marinade and duck breast skin side down and saute on high heat for 5 minutes. The duck fat should melt and the meat should expand.
3
Turn over the duck and brown on the other side for 1-2 minutes. Remove and wrap in foil, allow to rest for 10 minutes.
4
In the same frying pan, add the whole grapes and put the lid on to steam fry. Once softened, roughly mash.
5
Slice the duck thinly and transfer to a serving dish. Pour over the grape sauce and season with salt & pepper if you like.

Tips & Note

Some people say rare duck is best. If you want a rare duck, saute it on high heat without the lid on. For medium rare or well cooked, put the duck in foil in a tupperware container so it carries on cooking with residual heat. But never overcook duck - it will be too hard!
