Preparation:

Lightly rinse the duck breast, pat dry with kitchen paper, slice thinly and put in a non-metallic dish that will not react with acid.

Blend the orange rind with half the water and 1 tablespoon of vinegar in a bowl and pour over the duck. Cover lightly with cling film and leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes. Stir occasionally during marinating.

Meanwhile, heat a non-stick saucepan and spray with the oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the sugar, then add the remaining water and the vinegar. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes until the onions are soft. Keep warm.

Heat a non-stick heavy-based frying pan, add the duck breast with the marinade and cook gently for 6 minutes. Add the cooked onions with any liquor and stir together lightly.

Blend the corn flour with 1 tablespoon of water and stir into the pan. Cook, stirring, until the liquid has thickened, then cook for a further 2 minutes, or until the duck is tender and the onions are hot. Garnish with parsley and orange wedges and serve with salad.

* Serves 4.

This Seared Duck recipe requires very little preparation. It has a great flavor for just a little effort.
