Duck is a versatile, stronger, meatier flavor and highly nutritious compared to turkey and chicken. Duck meat refers to the legs and breast of a bird, which contains high fat content. The fat between meat and outer layer of skin gives extra flavor and rendering power to the meat.

Preparing duck breasts for cooking
Air-dry the duck breasts for 3 days at least 1 day before in your refrigerator. This removes the moisture from skin and makes it crisp and ready to cook. Before cooking, take out the duck breasts from the fridge and let them come down to room temperature.
Pan-fry is one of the great ways to cook the meat as the skin becomes crispy. Score skin of duck breast and season it with salt. Fry the breasts in a frying pan on medium heat.
Once the fat releases remove it with a spoon. Cook them for 6 minutes, turn it and continue for another 4 minutes. Once the meat turns pink remove from the pan and serve after 10 minutes. You can also cook it in the oven, preheat the oven at 190°C. Once the duck breasts get cooked place them in a preheated oven and let them cook until the skin turns golden color.
