Duck Breast with Raspberry Vinegar

This beautiful duck breast is served on a bed of salad leaves and raspberries, for a splash of sweetness and colour.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 25 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    4 duck breasts
    •    1 tbsp tomato paste
    •    150g fresh reapberries
    •    1 cup (250ml) red wine
    •    90ml raspberry vinegar
    •    150g baby salad leaves
    •    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    •    parsley sprigs to garnish
    •    45g unsalted butter, chilled, chopped
    •    2 tbsps raspberry jam or redcurrant jelly


  1. Score duck skin 3 or 4 times with a knife, then season. Heat a frypan over medium heat, place duck skin-side down and cook for 6 minutes until skin is crisp and fat has rendered. Turn over, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes. Remove, cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest.
  2. Drain fat from pan (use it to pan-fry diced potatoes if desired). Return pan to high heat, add vinegar and reduce to about 1 tablespoon. Add garlic, tomato paste and wine and cook for 2-3 minutes until reduced by half. Add jam, cook for 1 minute, then whisk in butter a piece at a time. Season to taste.
  3. Divide leaves between plates. Slice duck, then place on salad. Strain sauce over top. Garnish with parsley and scatter with raspberries.
