For duck Breast 

  • Score the fat in 1/2cm slices being careful not to cut into the flesh of the duck breast. 
  • Season the duck breast both sides with cracked black pepper and salt
  • Set aside in the fridge for at least 4 hours open in the fridge to air dry the fat. 
  • In a pan on medium heat, fat side down, fry the duck breast rendering down the fat and crisping. Once crispy flip the duck to the flesh side and cook for no longer than 2-3 minutes to ensure a medium rare doneness.
  • Rest for 5 minutes before cutting.

For beetroot

  • Boil the beetroot whole in salted boiling water until a sharp knife pierce after 20 minutes to ensure the beetroots are cooked through. 
  • Peel and then cut into 1cmX1cm squares. 
  • Season with salt. 

For smoked Labneh 

  • Add 5 drops of hickory smoke liquid or using a smoking gun smoke for 10 minutes. 
  • The key here is add smoke liquid and or smoke till the correct level, too much smoke flavour overwhelms the whole dish so its key that this is a light smoke flavour. 
  • If you do not have labnah, a good quality full fat cream cheese can also work. 
  • Place into a piping bag or zip lock bag and cut the corner off to use as a piping bag. 

For orange and Port sauce
