Duck with Dried Cherries and Rosemary
We used pinot noir for the red wine in the sauce. Substitute beef broth for an alcohol-free version. Use sweetened dried cranberries instead of cherries, if desired. Total time: 25 minutes.
1/2 cup dried sweet cherries 1/2 cup dry red wine 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar 2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger 1/8 teaspoon sugar 2 teaspoons olive oil 4 (6-ounce) boneless duck breast halves, skinned 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Rosemary sprigs (optional)
Combine first 6 ingredients, and set aside. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle both sides of duck with salt and pepper. Add duck to pan, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until a thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 170°. Place duck on a cutting board; cover with foil.
Add cherry mixture to pan; cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Cut duck into thin slices; spoon cherry mixture over duck. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 duck breast half and 2 tablespoons sauce)
