Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Score the skin side of the duck in a crisscross pattern, being careful not to cut all the way into the flesh. Season with salt and pepper and place in a very hot non-stick pan, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crispy and golden brown, about 4 minutes. Turn over and continue to cook for an additional 3 minutes. Place in the oven for 15 minutes for medium rare 25 minutes for medium to well. Take out and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

  • To prepare the sauce: In a hot saute pan add butter, chiles and red onion, and saute until onion is translucent. Add the berries, Marsala, and sugar, and let simmer for 5 minutes -until sauce begins to thicken.

  • To Plate:

  • Slice duck, place on platter top with sauce and finish with a crepe on the side.

Scallion Crepe:
  • Combine all ingredients except the butter. Whisk until blended, the consistency should that of heavy cream. Meanwhile, have a small non-stick omelet pan on medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add 3 ounces of the mixture and swirl around and cook for 1 minute per side. Repeat if more cakes are wanted.

  • Yield: 4 cakes
