Cured meat is a bit like wine it’s improving with time. So if you love shiraz or syrah and duck, here is a recipe that combines Duck Prosciutto & Shiraz.

Our first #reciporn = foodporn+wineporn! Just on time for Christmas celebrations.

It’s super easy, less than 30 minutes preparation and mainly all you need is a duck breast, a ton of salt and wine.

Ingrédients :

  • Duck breast
  • Salt (a lot and raw salt is better/cheaper)
  • 2 oz of red wine (Shiraz)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Dry herbs

Equipment :

  • Ziplock
  • Clean dish cloths and paper towel
  • Patience to wait the 2 weeks drying!


MAGRET SÉCHÉ (ma-grey say-chay in frenh) /Cured meat duck breast

STEP 1 Salt+wine Cooking

  1. Like picture above cover red meat with herbs, salt & pepper.
  2. In a ziplock put some raw salt (in big chunks) place magret fat skin down.
  3. Add raw salt on red meat and 1 once of Shiraz. Close ziplock removing air.
  4. Store at the bottom of your fridge for 18 hours.


STEP 2 Drying

  1. Rince in clear water
  2. Add water in a bowl with 1 oz of Shiraz to cover magrets, let it sleep 30min in the fridge.
  3. Dry with a paper towel.
  4. Add Pepper, piment d’Espelette (paprika, red pepper…) and dry herbs.
  5. Roll in a clean dish cloth.

I strongly recommend that you buy a complete duck, you’ll get two breasts for the price of one!
