Duck Breast Prosciutto
Spread the love

Most prosciutto is made with pork. The recipe which follows is made with moulard duck breast. Moulard is a duck raised for foie gras, and its meat is typically more flavorful than domestic pekin, while not as gamy as wild mallard.

The magret is the lobe, or half breast of the moulard duck (each duck will have two magrets, or one full breast).

.7 OZ salt per pound of duck magret

Per Magret: (i.e., curing spices per unit of duck magret)
