Duck confit with blood orange sauce
Duck confit is the perfect dinner for two (or four, or six...): it's quick to prepare (well, at your end it is; at ours, it's a two day labour of love), incredibly delicious and always feels a bit celebratory. We confit our duck marylands by first curing them overnight in a salt, sugar and herb rub, then cooking them very gently in their own fat. The blood orange sauce is a reduction of duck stock and blood orange juice, with finely julienned, blanched zest providing a nicely bitter contrast.To serve, reheat duck pieces in a 180C oven for 10 minutes, then flash under the grill to crisp up the skin, or place in a hot, dry frying pan 5-10 minutes, turning once. Serving size is two pieces of confit, plus sauce, serving two people. Will last for months in the fridge or may be frozen. Defrost before reheating as above.
