The richness of duck is brilliantly offset by fruity sauces, such as with this fresh blackberry one. The sharpness of the berries cuts through the fattiness of the duck and balances the dish perfectly. Duck breasts should be served pink in the middle to ensure the dense meat stays tender, so don’t be tempted to cook it for much longer than the time stipulated.
