  • Summary

    Duck breast is a sadly underrated meat. Served rare to medium-rare and sliced on the diagonal, it has the mineral tang of beef. This southwestern version, with its slightly spicy sauce, elicits every ounce of flavor from the bird. And it's so easy!

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (preferably dark amber or Grade B)
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo
    • 1 (3- to 4-inch) cinnamon stick
    • 2 whole cloves
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 (1-lb) boneless Muscovy duck breasts with skin or 6 (7- to 8-oz) Long Island (also called Pekin) duck breast halves with skin
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • an instant-read thermometer
