Our first recipe is a salad — a bright way to dine either at lunch or dinner. We purchased frozen boned duck breasts. It’s easiest to remove the skin and fat when the breast is slightly frozen. It just peels right off. Make sure you score the duck meat before cooking and do cook it to medium to keep it tender and moist. Another time substitute your favorite fish. This recipe will be one you make over and over.
- 1/4 cup fresh juice
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2-3 teaspoons grated fresh ginger, to taste
- 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, (optional)
- 4 4-ounce (duck breasts
- 1 mango, peeled, seeded, and sliced
- 6 cups mixed greens
- In a cup, combine along the juice, honey, ginger, soy sauce, olive oil, and red pepper flakes, if using. Set aside.
- Score the duck breasts and brush with a small amount of the dressing. Grill or broil till medium. take away and permit to rest for five minutes. Slice thin.
- To serve, place the mixed greens on four large plates. make a fan of mango slices over the greens on every plate, and prime with slices of duck breast. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
