good sauce for duck breast that isn't sweet/fruit based?

really not a fan of fruits or most sweet with savoury pairings but every recipe recommends them for duck breast/duck in general

      looks interesting, i like that channel but i haven't seen this video. where can i get fresh/brined peppercorns tho? I've only seen them dried tbh

      You could go green pepper, but duck really requires the sharpness of fruit.

      i might actually try it next time, i just don't want to make something that i won't like and then have to throw it out. usually i just make a quick pan sauce with the fond and some stock/wine but I'm looking for new ideas

      How about:
      Juice of 1 lime
      Dash of lime zest
      Half cup of stock then reduced by half
      25g Butter
      1 spoon of creme fraiche

        Mustard sauce is nice.

          Well it won't be sweet but whatever.
          Replace the lime with sherry vinegar.

            Fair enough. Do Americans even have sweet limes? Cuz we didn't have sour ones where I'm from when I was growing up (we do now lol) but I've never encountered a sweet line in the US. Just less sour ones.

            sounds interesting, might try

            not gonna be so pedantic about it. my major issue is overall sweetness. most sauces with tart fruit like berries are way too sweet for me, his idea with the lime sounds good. got any recipe for a mustard sauce?

            i'm currently staying in poland and i haven't seen them in any supermarkets but maybe it's cause i wasn't looking for them. i'll ask next time i'm shopping cause that recipe looks interesting. also they constantly have duck on sale here during autumn-winter but it basically disappears from the shops just around april so i better buy it while it's still there and cheap

            >recipe for a mustard sauce
            It's been a long while since I've made one but it's basically a vinaigrette but with butter and the duck's own rendered fat rather than oil. Sear the duck, remove from the pan, add butter if/add necessary until you've got enough fat in the pan to work with then whisk in mustard and vinegar until it emulsifies. Some people do, in fact, sweeten it, but I never bother since I tend to cook duck breast with a lot of onion or shallot which are plenty sweet when cooked. The last time I made a mustard sauce, it was for pork and I used a homemade carrot juice vinegar for it and it was absolutely fantastic and made me wonder why carrot wine and carrot vinegar aren't a thing.

    Hey OP, I find this to be really good with duck, it's definitely not sweet. It's Thai Holy Basil Sauce.

    Best duck I've ever had was:
    Itik Salai Masak Lemak Cili Api
    (Smoked Duck cooked with Coconut cream and "chilli fire" is the direct translation)
    It was slightly sweet but very spicy. Heavy turmeric, garlic, ginger, lemongrass, and lots of green chilli in a coconut cream sauce. The duck was insanely good. Mark Weins did a whole episode about this dish. He said it was "life-changing", so I went to Kuala Lumpur, and tried it. And he was correct. I still have dreams about this dish.
