Dried duck breast and paprika

Dried duck breast and paprika recipe

It’s so good that it never lasts more than an aperitif, with these rather discreet spices, this dried duck breast and paprika took all its value on the occasion of the arrival of my beautiful daughter. I really like ducks and this year, the breeders’ sector suffered from avian flu, it is important to verify the origins of your ducks and to confine yourself only to French poultry. Dried duck breast and paprika can wait a few weeks in your fridge, of course: the longer it waits, the drier it will be. My son found that he was not as usual, indeed the drying time was reduced, I will not make this mistake again. From the next duck promotion I will give him a Dried Duck Breast and Paprika again, with a test over two months, of course, I will keep you posted.

A thought to all those connected from France or abroad in love with French cuisine and its wines, here is a great opportunity for you to buy a quality wine, without any risk, to accompany my duck breast recipe dried paprika.

Château Anthonic 2011 Moulis-en-Médoc
With its pretty light ruby color, it gives way to red fruits with aromas of strawberries and currants then to grilled notes of spices. A very supple wine to enjoy now. Silver medal at the Brussels World Competition in 2014
