Barbequed Duck with Peaches



2 duck magrets (breasts)
1 teaspoon honey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon butter
4 yellow peaches or nectarines, pitted and cut into slices (8 per peach)
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Yield: 4 servings


Prepare the barbecue or preheat the broiler. Mix the honey, 1/4 cup water and lemon juice over medium heat and stir until dissolved. This step will take a couple of minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Pour half of the honey mixture on the duck breasts. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and add the peach slices. Pour the rest of the honey mixture over and cook for a few minutes, until the peaches are tender but not mushy. Grill the duck magrets 3 minutes on each side. Let rest a few minutes, and slice on the bias. Plate and cover with the peaches and their juice. Note: Serving this dish with a green vegetable like zucchini or haricots verts adds color and takes care of your veggies portion.
