We’re well into second “proper MCO”, so I guess most of us here are back to tapao, delivery, and cooking, so I suppose it’s timely for me to go back to sharing some recipes again.

Today let’s look at one of the easiest meals you can make with a sous vide machine – duck breast. This is one dish that takes a couple hours but only perhaps 5 minutes hands-on cooking, with the result being rather satisfying and properly delicious, if you’re one who loves smoked duck.

sous vide duck breast recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 smoked duck breast (or normal duck breast, seasoned well with salt)
  • some aromatics (optional – dill, rosemary)
  • a side dish – asparagus in this case, with some garlic

Cooking instructions:

  • sous vide duck breast in vacuum bag with aromatics for 2 hours at 57 Celsius
  • remove, pad dry, and sear skin down until crispy (2-3 minutes)
  • use the duck fat reduced from searing to cook asparagus (2-3 minutes)
  • slice up duck breast (after we’ve let it rest for 3-5 minutes) and serve!

I always try to have some frozen duck breast in the fridge handy for this dish, it’s super easy to prepare and takes the headache of “what to eat” away. Invest in a sous vide machine especially if you love to eat meat, it’s worth it!

  1. Same here, I always keep one or two packets of smoked duck in my fridge but I seldom eat it as mains because it is a bit too salty. I normally paired with stir fried veggies or salad.

  2. Duck!!! Count me in!!!

  3. You have all the toys of a chef…sous vide machine and torch…like a pro! 😉
