Muscovy Duck Breast
Muscovy duck, raised with no antibiotics or hormones on a California farm in open, spacious barns that permit natural behavior. The stress-free environment, balanced grain diet and the fact that ducks are raised to full maturity - twice as long as the industry standard – contribute to the flavor of our Muscovy duck. Prized for its lean, full-flavored red meat and thin skin, Muscovy duck is a favorite among our chefs.

Cooking & Serving
Cooking Methods: Pan-Sear, Pan-Roast, Sous Vide, Grill
Cooking Tips: Muscovy duck is the leanest of our ducks and will render less fat when cooking. Using a fork, prick the skin all over before roasting a whole duck to help the fat render. Add aromatics like shallots, citrus, garlic, and/or herbs to the cavity for flavor. Using a rack or vertical roaster in a shallow roasting pan will allow the skin to crisp nicely. Save the precious rendered fat for another use. The robust flavor of a Muscovy duck pairs well with fruit-forward sauces and glazes.
