We do a lot of wild game hunting, and it's hard sometimes to get the gaminess out. This is a quick and easy recipe. I cook duck like red meat, so if you like eating your red meat well done, cook it a little longer.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). Grease a 1 1/2 quart glass baking dish with a lid.
  2. Spread about 1/4 cup of marmalade in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Set the duck breasts in the dish on the marmalade. Poke holes all over the breasts with a fork, and spread a layer of marmalade (about 1 tablespoon for each) over the duck breasts. Sprinkle the garlic over the top of the duck meat. Spread the onion and orange slices around the duck breasts in the dish.
  3. Cover the dish, and bake in the preheated oven until the duck breasts measure 100 degrees F (38 degrees C) when measured with an instant-read meat thermometer, about 15 minutes. Remove the lid, spread about 1 more tablespoon of marmalade over each breast, and return to the oven, uncovered. Bake until the meat is medium rare (145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

A rare combination of easy, exciting and actually wholesome, a great way to impress any guests. Adding garlic and onion to orange seemed a bit weird at the start, but the tastes blended together marvelously. The orange and onion rings are a perfect side dish in themselves, I just added some fresh herbs for serving. Will do again!

Very easy to make and was delicious! I almost always order Duck a l'orange whenever it is available on the menu, so it is nice to be able to make it at home. My husband likes it but thinks that it is too 'orangey', but then again, he generally does not like fruit in his main course - cranberry sauce with turkey grosses him out... But I think this is a winner!
