    José Pizarro’s Duck breast pan fried with escabeche

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    4 duck breast

    2 tbsp olive oil

    3 garlic cloves, finely sliced

    2 medium carrots, cut into batons

    1 stick of celery diced

    1 echalions or banana shallot, sliced

    1 tsp black peppercorns

    2 sprigs fresh thyme

    6 tbsp sherry vinegar

    6 tbsp dry white wine

    200ml chicken stock

    8 dried apricot

    12 sultanas

    8 prunes, stoned and halved

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4. Score the skin of the duck breasts with a sharp knife and season well. Heat a non-stick frying pan and place the duck breasts in, skin-side down and fry for 6-7 minutes, until the skin is nice and crispy. Transfer to a small roasting tin and finish in the oven for 5-6 minutes for a medium.

    2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan in a medium heat. Fry the garlic for a minute, add the carrots, celery and shallots, cook for 2-3 minutes.

    3. Add the peppercorns, thyme, wine and vinegar and bring to the boil, so the alcohol evaporates; add the chicken stock and the dried fruit and leave to the escabeche to reduce.

    4. Take the duck breast out of the oven and leave to rest for a couple of minutes, before cutting the breast into 2 and placing on 4 warm plates. Spoon the escabeche over the top and serve.
