I made this tonight using my own pan seared duck breast with salt and pepper and it was AMAZING! The only thing I did not like was when spicing the walnuts, they seemed to burn, and not caramelize, very quickly. I had my stove set to low, to try and avoid it. It was also my first time cooking duck breast.
