    Pan Seared Duck Breast w Black Cherry Vinaigrette & Raspberries

    Serves 4

    Tangy and sweet black cherry vinaigrette is the perfect complement to pan seared duck breast and it’s easy-to-make to boot! It also pairs perfectly with my Garlic Roasted Asparagus.


    What You’ll Need:

    A Sharp Kitchen Knife

    A Blender

    A 12 Inch Stainless Steel Pan

    A 2-Quart Pan with a Cover

    Measuring Cups & Spoons

    2 Kitchen Plates

    Spatula or Kitchen Tongs

    A Kitchen Spoon

    Aluminum Foil



    1 LB Duck Breast

    1 Tbsp Olive Oil

    Fresh Ground Pepper & Sea Salt


    Black Cherry Vinaigrette Sauce:

    1/2 Cup Black Cherry Balsamic
    1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1/4 Cup Dijon
    1/4 Cup Organic Vegetable Broth
    1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
    Drops of Hot Sauce
    1 Pint Raspberries at Room Temperature


    How To Put It Together:

    1) To the blender add the Black Cherry Vinaigrette ingredients: blend until well-combined. Pour the vinaigrette into a small pot and place it over low heat to simmer; stirring occasionally.
    2) Give the duck breast a healthy grinding of sea salt and pepper. Preheat a stainless steel pan over medium-high heat. You’ll know that the pan is ready when you place your hand about 1 inch above the pan’s surface and you feel heat radiating from the pan. Add the olive oil; swirl it around the pan. Add the the duck breast skin side down; allow to brown for 3 – 5 minutes. Turn the duck and allow it to cook for another 3 minutes or so. Transfer the duck to a plate; tent the breasts with foil and allow them to rest for about 5 minutes.
    3) Slice the duck breast on the diagonal; place it on a dinner plate. Spoon the Black Cherry Vinaigrette over the duck; garnish with raspberries.
    4) Serve and enjoy!
