We’re obsessed with duck at D’Artagnan. And the breast is one of the most flavorful cuts of the duck. Rich, meaty and lean (once the fat cap is removed, it’s as lean as turkey or chicken), it’s also as easy to cook as a steak, and just as quick. Versatile and adaptable to many cuisines and spices, duck breast is poultry but tastes more like red meat. Explore the four different types of D’Artagnan duck breast available at our website.
