Our "French Friday's with Dorie" Group challenge this week was pan-seared duck breasts with kumquats. Never could find any kumquats here at the beach, so we used mandarin oranges. This dish was sooooo yummy and will be making it again very soon.
We really liked the taste a fruity smoothness of the orange sauce. I think the next time we make it we may use a blend of mulling spices instead of the coriander, no particular reason only to see the difference in flavors.
This particular recipe can be found in Dories Greespan's cookbook, “Around My French Table” or here at Epicurious where it has been published. You can also check us out on the FrenchFridays web-page.
