Recipe Duck breast with foie gras and figs


Recipe for duck breast with foie gras and figs. I prepared these duck breasts for a friend who has a lot of people for the Christmas holidays. The duck breasts were on sale just the month before Christmas. We froze them. All you have to do is thaw them and cook them for thirty minutes. I took the opportunity to prepare duck breasts with spices. Dried, they will be the kings of the aperitif. But that will be the subject of another article. I like the duck breast and its cooking in the oven which today allows anyone to succeed in this beautiful and generous poultry. I appreciate the approach of Christmas and all the preparations that make up these end-of-year celebrations.
