Quick Duck Confit Salad

Ricardo's recipe: Quick Duck Confit Salad



  1. To make a quick lunch salad, count for each serving: a confit duck leg, deboned and shredded, that you will serve with 3 or 4 new potatoes, blanched for 5 minutes, sliced and pan-fried in duck fat. When the potatoes begin to brown, add the duck meat, heat for a few minutes, shaking the pan. Pour onto a mixture of lettuce (arugula, watercress, endive or mesclun).
  2. Deglaze the pan with balsamic vinegar or another good vinegar. Pour over the salad, drizzle with a little olive oil and pepper. Regarding salt, taste before seasoning, because sometimes the confit is already quite salty. 


In my freezer, I always keep a few vacuum-packed confit duck legs that I bought from my butcher. They are great served warm as an appetizer over greens, and can become an unpretentious but refined main dish.
