Pan Seared Duck Breast with Five Spice, Port & Sour Cherry Compote

Bijouxs Little Jewels | Pan Seared Duck Breast with Five Spice, Port and Sour Cherry Compote

A plate reflecting the colors of the season – the rich burgundy of Autumn hues is mirrored by Pan Seared Duck Breast with Five Spice, Port & Sour Cherry Compote. A little jewel that is a Perfect Pairing for the season.

When you think of a 15-minute meal this elegant Pan Seared Duck Breast with Five Spice, Port and Sour Cherry Compote is certainly not the first to mind. This dish was born in a moment of inspiration when cooking with friends and this rich little jewel takes no more time than cooking, say a quick Greek Lemon Chicken. Here’s how.

First, I have been noticing many larger supermarkets are now carrying fresh duck, look for packages of individual duck breasts in the meat counter and if you are flying solo for dinner this is a great option to experience some of Autumn’s richness, without breaking the bank. Next, keeping things simple, purchase a jar of tart cherry jam, a tablespoon of this really finishes the dish – and you have the rest of the jar to spread on a toasted buttery slice of brioche bread to warm a chilly Autumn morn.

Savoring the richness of the season with everyday beauty from the the Bijouxs Kitchen – a Perfect Pairing. Thank you for being a part of the Bijouxs Little Jewels Kitchen.
