Pan-Seared Duck Breast with Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
Great recipe. Made a few modifications, which I think made for a healthier dinner 1/2 Sweet Potatoes, half regular Cured, as in uncooked, candian bacon instead of panchetta. Seared in olive oil very thin slices, 10 seconds a side and put on a plate to be used later. Less fat but all the smokey flavor. Added more olive oil to make up for the lack of drippings. Cooked the duck breasts as called for, 5 minutes on skin side, 2 minutes on other side. Then, removed and discarded the skin and seared the now exposed side until medium rare (our preference) With the bacon, rolled small pieces of the duck with cornichons, held together with a tookpick. Kids loved it. Blueberry sauce, substituted a very ripe mango, sliced thin for the called for 1/4 cup of sugar. Perhaps not as sweet but all the blueberry flavor and good enough to put on your pancakes the next morning. We didn't do the jalapeno so not sure how that would work.
