Allowing the duck to rest ensures the juices stay in the meat when it is sliced, making it juicy and the meat tenderer. Also, the meat will continue to cook for a while whilst resting which evens out the colour so it is pink, but not rare, in the centre.
To test if the grill is hot enough add a few drops of cold water to the hot surface. If it sizzles and the water evaporates almost immediately, it is hot enough and ready for use. If the water produces steam and has no sizzle, heat the grill for a little longer and repeat the test again.
You can also enjoy the grilled Duck breasts with seasonal vegetables and a glossy celeriac purée or mashed potatoes.
Shred any leftover duck and put in a bread wrap (with some cherry tomatoes and rocket salad and ) to make a delicious on-the-go lunch for the kids! Shredded leftovers will also make a good protein top for your salad.
