duck breast halves
creme de cassis liqueur
This recipe is absolutely amazing! My roommate and I tried it for practice once, before inviting a couple of girlfriends over a week later and making it for them. We all agreed that it was phenomenal both times. One of the best meals I've ever eaten, and highly recommended. Tip: This may sound strange, but try serving potato wedges along with it--that's what we did and it worked out great, even with the raspberry sauce (maybe especially with the sauce!)
Too many flavors. The duck preparation was good, but the sauce and sugar/cinnamon was too much.
I added ginger - it's delicious!
I enjoyed this dish. The cinnamon was a great addition. This is a very simple recipe and you should not be afraid to try it. My only criticism is that the sauce lacks the depth of a sauce made with a stock reduction. Despite the red wine, it was too much like a pie filling for my tastes. On the other hand, the simplicity of the recipe makes it a great choice for a busy cook.
Very tasty. Like another reviewer, I used triple sec instead of creme de cassis. The only thing that I regret is that I used frozen rasperries instead of fresh, which made the sauce a bit sweet for my or my husband's tastes. Still, it was very good, and I will be making it again with that one change.
Excellent recipe - really important not to over-broil it at the end. The sea salt, cinnamon and sugar rub was too much, and I ended up using only about 3/4 of it. I used Triple Sec instead of Creme de Cassis due to availability which worked out just fine. Otherwise the dish was fantastic and received rave reviews at Christmas dinner.
Really important to not overcook this dish and very easy to do, especially if you're (like me) paranoid about eating pinkish meat. I had a delicious duck in a restaurant right after having made this dish and noticed immediately that one of the major differences (and what really made the dish a lot better in the restaurant) was that it was much more med-rare, still pinkish inside.
Berries on duck are a particular favorite for me. IMHO, raspberries are the perfect compliment - sweet and tangy juxtaposed with the meat's smooth rich flavor. Awesome.
