I marinaded the duck over night in a citrus balsamic marinade. For the sauce I swapped in sliced leeks for the shallots and added a bit of red wine to the sauce. Served on a bed of citrus wild rice... Perfection.

Duck breasts may seem too fancy for the average weeknight, but they roast up beautifully and quickly. This preparation, with its luscious ruby-colored sauce, is definitely one that will impress.
6 Reviews for Pomegranate Duck
I cooked this for my boyfriend and I for our Valentine's day dinner. I was a little nervous because it was my first time cooking duck, although I've loved ordering it in restaurants. I used frozen duck halves and the package of 4 came to 1.3 pounds. I made two skinless and two with skin and I really have to say the skinless was a better choice. The sauce tasted great with the duck and I would definitely advise sprinkling the parsley on top. Great dinner!
This was an amazing dish! So easy to make. The sauce was to die for! My fiancé was thoroughly impressed! Will make again for a special occasion.
Made this for my son-in-laws birthday dinner. Was very well received, and extremely easy and ready in less than 20 minutes. We will be having this again.
