Preparation and cooking time: 20 min



  • 4 duck fillets, skin removed
  • vegetable oil
  • Sauce:
  • 1 packet demi-glace sauce
  • 175 ml (3/4 cup) cold water
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) maple syrup
  • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) lemon zest

In a lightly oiled pan, sear the duck fillets. Turn the meat once and cook approximately 10 min, until the meat is slightly pink in the middle.

Maple syrup sauce:
