Duck with Hasselback potatoes and a salad of chicory and roasted figs

img_2410

More or less by accident I created a potential Sylvestermenu today.  It started with a recipe for roasted figs with chicory I saw.  The combination watched my interest and I wanted to make it immediately. but as it is a side dish, I needed something to go along with it. Recently I made Hasselback potatoes, and that seemed a logical combination. Then I had to decide about meat: I was thinking about lamb or duck, it became duck.

the recipes for the Hasselback potatoes and the roasted fig-chicory salad have already been published, so here it is only about the duck.

Method for the duck:

  • Prepare the duck by making incisions crosswise in the fatty part.
  • Bake the duck first on the fat part until golden brown. Meanwhile season the other part with pepper and salt.
  • When golden brown, turn the duck around, and bake on the other side until brown.
  • Place the duck in a preheated oven of 200°C for 10 minutes.
  • Then wrap the duck into tinfoil and let it rest for another 10 minutes.

  • a handful of pistachios

Method:

  • Preheat the oven at 200°C.
  • chop the onion fine.
  • cut the figs into quarters.
  • Mix the onion and the figs, add oil, acid, balsamic and sugar.

  • Take the mixture out of the oven, add the pistachios, mix everything well, and put it in the oven for another 5 minutes.
