This is a lighter way to enjoy duck breast. It’s served with an Asian salad and hoisin dipping sauce, which maximizes the flavor of the duck. The duck breast is perfectly blushing pink when cooked at 57C. You don’t want to overcook it while rendering the fat at the end, so make sure the pan is extra hot.

Ingredients for 2

  • 2 (5- to 6-ounce) duck breasts, cold
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 cups Chinese cabbage, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 red Thai chiles, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons fried shallots
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin, for serving

Directions
Step 1
Set the BioloMix Sous Vide Cooker to 134ºF (57ºC).

Step 2
Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat for 5 minutes. While the pan is heating, season the duck breasts with salt.

Step 3
Add the duck to the hot skillet, skin side down, and cook until the fat begins to render, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Step 4
Transfer the seared duck to a large zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the moist setting.

Step 5
Place the bag in the water bath and set the timer for 1 hour.

Step 6
About 10 minutes before the duck is finished, prepare the salad: Combine the cabbage, bean sprouts, carrot, cilantro, chiles, and sesame seeds in a large bowl.

Step 7
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, honey, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil. Set aside for serving.

Finishing Steps
Step 0
When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Remove the duck from the bag and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 1
Return the cast iron skillet to high heat. Add the duck, skin side down, and sear until golden brown and fat has rendered, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.

Step 2
Dress the salad and divide between 2 serving plates.

Step 3
Thinly slice the duck and arrange slices on top of salad. Top with fried shallots and serve with hoisin sauce on the side.
