1 duck breast


  • 1 (6 ounce) skin-on duck breast

  • 2 cloves garlic, cut into 1/8-inch strips

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary


  1. Place duck breast skin side-down on a cutting board. Cut a small slit from top to bottom, 2/3 of the way through the duck breast. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Place duck breast skin side-down in the hot skillet; cook until browned, about 30 seconds. Flip and repeat on the other side.

  4. Transfer duck breast to a clean work surface, skin-side down. Place 3 or 4 garlic strips inside the slit. Place rosemary sprig over garlic; top with remaining garlic strips. Place skin side-up in a baking pan.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 120 degrees F (50 degrees C), about 10 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
