Marinade prepared

1. Pour soy sauce, dry white wine and vegetable oil into a deep container for duck breasts. Add your favorite spices and herbs as desired. Mix well.

Wash the duck breasts, dry with a paper towel and make punctures with a knife. They will help marinate the meat better. If the breasts are peeled, then you can leave it, then the snack will be more nutritious and fatty, but also high-calorie. If you want a leaner piece, then remove the peel. Most often in recipes it is recommended to take duck breast with skin. During cooking, the fat melting at a high temperature will make the meat more tender. And when the dish is ready, the skin from the fillets can be removed.

2. Dip the duck fillets in the sauce until they are completely covered and marinate for 3 hours, but can be kept longer, for example overnight. But in this case, send the breasts to the refrigerator. Then the meat will be juicier and more tender.

3. Transfer the fillets to a baking dish and pour out any remaining marinade. Cover the dish with a lid or cling foil and place the duck breast in a preheated oven to 180 degrees for 40 minutes. If you want the meat to have a golden brown crust, then open it 10 minutes before cooking.

Chill the finished duck breast well in the refrigerator and only then cut it. Since it is not recommended to cut the breast immediately after cooking, so that delicious juice does not flow out.Duck fat, which remains after cooking, can not be poured out, and subsequently used in the preparation of other dishes: for example, fry potatoes on it.
