From a guide at Libby Camps. Works with any dark meat fowl (duck, goose, woodcock). Easy and really good. Fillet breast into two nice fillets, rub with salt and pepper on breast and dust in flour. Fry quickly in a little olive oil or butter in pan. Leave rare and cover. Set aside to rest.
Glaze: Using the drippings/olive oil/butter in pan, add a few tablespoons of butter, couple tablespoons of brown sugar, couple squirts of orange juice and ¼ cup of Grand Marnier. Flame off liquor, stirring with wooden spoon. Glaze will thicken. Drizzle over duck breast fillets, and serve.
