To start, lightly score the skin and fat of the raw duck breast with a sharp knife, making shallow diagonal cuts on the skin side, being careful not to cut into the meat.

2

Sprinkle salt over the skin and massage it into the cuts, then season the meat side with salt and pepper.

3

Preheat the oven to 200°C (395°F). Place the duck breast, skin side down, in a cold cast-iron pan. Allow the fat to render out over medium heat without adding any oil.

4

After 3 to 4 minutes, when the skin is golden brown, flip the breast and let it cook meat side down for 30 to 40 seconds.

5

Remove the pan from the heat, drain off the fat, and reserve it. Flip the breast back onto the skin side and transfer the pan to the preheated oven for 6 minutes.

6

Check the meat temperature after 3 minutes, aiming for 58°C (137°F) for perfect doneness. If needed, continue cooking for the remaining time.

7

Once cooked, let the yummy grilled duck breast rest on a plate for 6-8 minutes to retain its juices. Then, slice and serve as desired.
