Sazon and Cinnamon Rubbed Duck Breasts

December 31, 2013

It’s duck hunting season and while I don’t hunt, I have plenty of neighbors who are more than willing to provide me with an ample supply of duck breasts.  For the recipe below, I utilized one of my favorite seasoning blends, Sazon complete seasoning, which combines cumin, onion, garlic and other herbs for a well-rounded blast of flavor, coupled with a touch of cinnamon to really bring it full circle.

Prepare grill for medium-high heat cooking.  Grill duck breast for approximately 5 minutes per side until they reach an internal temperature of 130-135 for medium rare.  Remove from heat, rest for 10 minutes, slice on the bias and serve.
