How to Make It
  1. Use a sharp knife to score the skin on the duck breasts. Rub the meat generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the duck skin-side down in a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium-low heat. Allow the duck fat to render for about 10–12 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 3–5 minutes. Set aside to rest. Keep warm.
  3. Drain off the duck fat. In the same pan, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and shallots and cook until caramelized.
  4. Add the raspberries, cardamom, and vinegar. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5–7 minutes. Transfer the duck to a serving plate and serve topped with the raspberry sauce.
