I had in mind the classic cheesecake when I cooked this cake, but I also changed a few things. I added lots of fruit, cream, and didn't use the oven at all. The filling is especially refreshing due to the combination of cream cheese and fruit, and it goes great with caramel.


Duck breast with oranges and caramel sauce classic French recipe

Duck breast with oranges and caramel sauce classic French recipe. How to cook duck breast with orange and Cointreau, Grand Marnier or other Triple Sec? How to properly fry a duck breast so that it has a reddish crust and pink, tender and juicy flesh? How to make caramel orange sauce? Duck breast recipes. Festive recipes.

Duck breast is a noble, fine and expensive meat that should be treated as such. I get horrified when I see chopped duck breasts made of sarmale or meatballs that are then unknowingly cooked & # 8230 really don't feel sorry? Okay, you can make a duck burger, but it is fried with the head so that the meat stays tender and pink. Nowadays you can't really blame ignorance because we all have access to information on the internet if not to cookbooks.

I really like duck breast (duck breast) and I cook it quite often. We are talking here about the boneless fillets of duck breast with the skin and fat attached. These two elements ensure the lubrication and fragility of the final preparation. I talked at length about how to properly fry a duck breast here.

This time I prepared a duck breast according to the classic French recipe with oranges, Cointreau and caramel sauce. Duck breast to orange. It's crazy! Okay, I've made this recipe about 20 times over time, but so far it hasn't appeared on the blog for the simple reason that I didn't get to pose for the ending. Why? Because the duck breast was eaten immediately!

For extra tenderness and flavor I marinated (stained) this duck breast for 24 hours in a mix of orange juice with Cointreau (Grand Marnier or another Triple Sec from Marie Brizard etc). In this way the meat was deeply impregnated with these great flavors!

French-style orange sauce is very easy to prepare: burnt sugar (caramelized) quenched with fresh orange juice, Cointreau and a piece of cold butter. At the end I put in it threaded orange pulp segments (without white membranes). The acidity of the oranges perfectly balances the fat of the duck breast and the sweetness of the sauce. A dream combination!

On the same occasion I also prepared an Asian style duck breast marinated with soy sauce, ginger, anise and garlic & # 8211 see the recipe here.

Both variants were very successful with mine so the plates were literally licked by them.

I give you the quantities for half a duck breast and you can multiply them according to your needs. My piece was quite large (approx. 380 g) so I divided it (after cooking) into 2 portions. There are duck breast fillets and smaller at 200-250 g and in this case it is calculated 1 / person. In the pictures you will see 2 pieces of duck breast: this one with oranges and the one in Asian style.
