Duck Magret Salad Recipe

02.07.11 by Jackie

Duck prosciutto (thin cuts of smoked duck breast) is one of my favorite cured meats. It makes the most ordinary of salads extraordinary. The combination of saltiness and flavor from the high fat content is irresistible. When I prepared this dish in Paris, for every slice of duck that went into the salad, one went into my mouth as well. I found a supplier on Amazon and I'm going to try them out because I cannot wait until my next trip to France to satisfy my duck prosciutto craving. This would make a perfect first course for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.

Dieters, avert your gaze! What started as a few innocent pieces of duck prosciutto turned into full-scale gorging of foie gras, oysters, veal and other French delicacies that left me 10 pounds heavier than I was when I arrived. You could say that duck prosciutto was my "gateway" meat .

Magret de Canard Roti au Miel Epices (Cardamom, Ginger, Mango and Star Anise spiced Honey Roasted Duck Breast) Recipe

I find duck meat to be very sophisticated. So whether you're throwing an elegant dinner or you're having a romantic dinner, duck is the perfect choice.

I'm used to making a French preparation of duck, but I wanted to use oriental flavors for this recipe instead.  I decided to use star anise and honey as the base for the glaze. Star anise is a classic Asian flavor, and I have some very special honey at home that I try to use whenever I need a sweetener for a dish.  Last time I was in Paris I got a jar of raw honey from my sister's in-laws who are honey makers in Amiens, a town in the nothern region of France.  It's just out of this world.
