Duck Proscuitto and a quick weeknight dinner
Duck + salt = delicious!
Duck proscuitto must be the easiest thing to make! Duck breast nestled into a bed of kosher salt, covered with a layer of salt and let to stand for a day.
proscuitto – in small pieces
shallot – diced
salt and pepper
Cook Pasta according to directions.
While pasta water heats, thaw frozen peas in the hot water, scoop thawed peas out to a bowl… Continue to cook pasta as directed….
Meanwhile – heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium high heat, add shallot & cook, stirring often until shallot is translucent.
Drain pasta, reserve 1/2 cup cooking water. Add cooked pasta to pan with duck and pea mixture. Toss to combine. Add a little pasta water if needed.
Add salt and pepper to taste – (start with pepper as duck is already a bit salty)
Fast, simple, delicious. Perfect!
The rest of proscuitto will be eaten out of hand, or as a part of appetizer plate, maybe on a pizza?
Until next time, Eat Well, and Keep Digging!
