Grill the breasts skin side down for 7 minutes
- 4 duck breasts, 0.5 lbs. each, or at least roughly the same size each
- 3 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 cups green beans, ends trimmed
- potatoes for serving
Preheat your grill to 400°F
Gently, with a sharp knife, score the skin of the duck in a diamond pattern, cutting through the skin and fat layer, but leaving the meat intact. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Combine the butter, maple syrup and brown sugar in a small bowl.
On your side burner, or on the stove, set a pot with half a cup of water to simmer. Add the green beans and cook for 4 minutes.
Place the duck breasts on the grill over direct heat, skin side down, and grill for 7 minutes.
Drain the green beans and bring them to the grill. Set the Cast Iron Skillet or one of the Griddles on the grill and add the green beans.
Flip the duck over and brush the skin side with the maple-butter mixture, brush the beans as well. Cook the duck breasts for another 3 to 5 minutes or until an instant read thermometer reads 165°F. Brush the breasts and beans generously with the maple-butter mixture several times before they’re done cooking.
Serve with potatoes and watch it disappear.
Imagine, if you will, a meal so delicious that a proper lady would pluck the remnants from her plate and nibble at them in the hopes of finding just a little more because it was so delicious. Maple Glazed Duck Breasts With Maple Green Beans was just such a meal. We visited the Baron's Granny and she loves when I cook, I always make her something delicious and out of the ordinary. This meal was no different. Duck benefits from a sweet treatment, so after a light seasoning of salt and pepper, I grilled them but good and finished them with a glaze of maple syrup and brown sugar. The beans I did on the side and finished with a quick stir fry, after steaming them, and topped it off with a maple compound butter.
