Roast the duck breast (click for photos)
- Preheat the oven to 375F.
- Wipe the duck breast dry with paper towels.
- Heat an oven-safe frying pan.
- Lay the duck breast in the hot pan, skin side down (it will sizzle!) and, over high heat, cook until the skin is nicely browned and fat has been rendered.
- Flip the chicken breast and sear the other side.
- Transfer the frying pan with the duck to the oven and roast the duck for 8 to 15 minutes depending on how rare or cooked you want it. Personally, I lean toward the 15-minute cooking time.
Make the sauce
- While the duck is in the oven, mix the ingredients for the sauce.
- Take the duck out of the oven, transfer to a chopping board and cover loosely with foil. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
Assemble the rice bowl
- Slice the duck breast and divide into portions.
- Half fill bowls with cooked rice (see also: how to cook rice), arrange the duck slices on top, drizzle the sauce over the duck and sprinkle with sliced scallions.
