1 tsp spicy mustard
1 tsp of finely chopped parsley
2 spring onions cleaned
10-15 green olives pitted
2 duck breasts, 800 gr  each
ground pepper
olive flavoured with garlic and rosemary


Preheat oven at 250° C.


1.  Place olives and onions in a mixer and blend together.

2.  Score the skin of the duck breast with a knife. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brown in a non-stick pan without the addition of cooking fat or oil for 2 minutes on each side. Discard the fat that collects and pat each breast with absorbent paper in order to remove any fat left.

3.  Spread the olive paste on the skin side of each breast. Place the breasts in an ovenproof dish and cook in  oven  for about 6 minutes.

4.  Remove from the oven, wrap in aluminum foil; return them to the oven for a further 4 minutes, with oven off.
