3 Reasons Why You Should Be Eating More Duck March 5, 2018
Spoiler alert: we’re making it really easy to eat more duck next week. Can’t believe your luck? Sneak a peek at the menu here.
If chicken is the tried-and-true darling of dinnertime, then duck is the just-as-delicious underdog. And we all love a good underdog story, don’t we?
If you’re not convinced, get to know these rapid-fire reasons why next week’s Pan-Seared Duck Breasts with Duck-Fried Potatoes, Asparagus, and Grape Tomatoes is the duck breast recipe your taste buds have been dreaming about.
1. Amazing flavor
Anytime juicy and crispy pair up, the results are delicious. And that’s exactly what happens when your duck renders in the pan. Add a side of tender tomatoes, wholesome asparagus, and duck-drenched potatoes for a plateful of savory goodness that doesn’t “taste like chicken” for the thousandth time. We love chicken (that much is obvious), but it’s nice to switch things up every once in a while.
Just see for yourself:
2. Feel-good nutrients
Say hello to your protein fix, complete with iron, B vitamins, zinc, and just as many Omega-3s as chicken. Duck does contain more saturated fats, but cooking it at home means you have full control of the ingredient list (so no sugary sauces like you’ll find at restaurants).
In next week’s dish, your typical salt, pepper, butter, and water bring the demi-glace we send you to life.
3. Low maintenance cooking
You heard it here first – duck requires almost no poking and prodding while it sizzles in the pan. And that seriously easy duck breast recipe we’ve been clamoring about proves just how simple it is to cook. Just a simple flip will do the trick, and that’s our favorite kind of cooking on busy weeknights.
Now that you’ve got the lowdown on duck’s deliciousness, you may not be able to wait until next week when it shows up on your doorstep with all the pre-measured ingredients to cook it like a pro (you can make that happen here).
If that’s the case, try whipping up this duck breast recipe from the archives tonight. We see blood oranges and maple syrup in your future!
