Duck Breasts with Apple Sauce

    40 minutes

    This is a lovely and easy way to cook duck breasts. The duck is seared on the outside locking in all the juice before being covered in a sweet fresh apple and Cavados sauce.

    1. In a non-stick frying pan add the duck breasts skin side down; there is no need to add any fat. Cook over high heat for 2 minutes.
    2. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 more minutes on each side.
    3. Melt the butter in a separate frying pan on high heat then add the apples and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.
    4. Reduce to low heat and cook the apples for 10 minutes.
    5. Reduce heat to very low and deglaze the frying pan with Calvados. (Do not add the Calvados near a flame. Remove the frying pan from the stove and add the Calvados then return).
    6. Serve immediately with the apple sauce.
