Ingredients

500 ml / 2 cups    fresh pineapple, diced
500 ml / 2 cups    cucumber, peeled, seeded, halved lengthwise and sliced
50 ml / 1/4 cup    shredded mint leaves
50 ml / 1/4 cup    shredded basil leaves
30 ml / 2 tbsp    balsamic vinegar
30 ml / 2 tbsp    granulated maple sugar
2    duck breasts (magrets)

Directions

In a bowl, combine all ingredients except the duck and allow to macerate at room temperature.

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan. Slash the duck skin in a cross-cross pattern and place skin-side down in the very hot pan. Cook about 6 minutes on each side for medium-rare.

Transfer the meat to a heated serving platter, cover with aluminum foil and let rest 5 minutes.

Slice into thin strips and serve with the salsa.

Suggested side dish: Crunchy biscotti for dessert
