Quick Duck Rillettes

20 MIN
15 MIN
500 ml (2 cups)



  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, soften the onion and garlic in 30 ml (2 tablespoons) duck fat. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the wine, honey and oregano. Bring to a boil and reduce by 3/4. Add the duck meat and remaining fat. Return to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently, stirring constantly to break the meat into shreds, until the liquid has evaporated and the fat and meat meld, 5 to 8 minutes. Adjust the seasoning.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 500-ml (2-cup) terrine or clip-top jar, a 10 x 20-cm (4 x 8-inch) loaf pan, two 250-ml (1-cup) terra cotta ramekins, or stoneware mustard jars. Serve with bread and gherkins or caper berries.


Can be made a day ahead.
