It was nice having some duck with my melted butter.

Ingredients

  • Duck breast (just one, you don’t want to be greedy with breasts)
  • Mushrooms (I bought about four small mushrooms and sliced them)
  • Spring onions (I sliced about 5 cm worth of about 10 blades)
  • Butter (A generous knob because I am a generous knob)
  • Frozen peas and corn (About half a cup)
  • Avocado (Sliced cheeks)

Instructions

  1. Heat a frypan.
  2. Squirt in some Queensland nut oil.
  3. Sauté the sliced mushrooms and spring onions until soft.
  4. Clear a bit of the frypan and lay the duck breast down skin side down.
  5. Put a lid on the frypan and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. Turn the duck breast over and cook for another five minutes with the lid on.
  7. Remove the duck breast from the frypan and add the butter to the mushrooms and spring onions along with the frozen peas and corn.
  8. Cook until the peas and corn are warmed through.
  9. Serve the duck breast with the buttery mushroom sauce and the sliced avocado cheeks.

Thought for the day

I’m going to buy a whistle so I can start walking in the mornings again.
