- Salt and pepper
Preparation time: 45 min
Preheat your BBQ at 450 °F
Finely chop the chives.
In a saucepan, reduce the orange juice by half.
Stem the thyme (remove the leaves). Mix the leaves with the panko.
Cut a small segement off the end of each tomato, then cut in half in the same direction. This will allow for your halved tomatoes to stand easily without moving.
In the reduction of orange juice, add the honey and rosemary, continue reduce so as to obtain a syrupy texture.
Remove the excess fat from the duck breasts, cut into cubes (cut the duck in half lengthwise, then slice into cubes). Normally you should use 3 to 4 cubes per skewer, depending on the size of the duck breast.
Cut the slices of bacon in three, wrap each date with a piece of bacon, normally 3 per skewer.
Assemble the kebabs, start with a duck cube, then alternate with bacon wrapped dates.
Season the kebabs with salt and place them on the BBQ grill. Turn them regularly, make sure you keep duck pink ideally.
Once well colored on each side, brush with orange, honey and rosemary syrup. Then place them on the top rack to finish cooking with indirect heat.
Repeat the operation with the syrup if you wish.
- Mashed new potatoes
In a sotck pot filled with cold, salted water, add the potatoes. Bring to a boil until fully cooked, you must easily pierce the potatoes with the tip of a knife. Drain and peel the potatoes.
Crush lightly with a potato press, add butter, salt and pepper.
Add the truffle oil and chives, mix and taste to ensure proper seasoning.
- Roasted tomatoes
Place the tomato halves on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, finish with the Panko and thyme.
Place them in the oven or on the upper grill of the BBQ. Cook until a nice toasted colour is acheived.
Do not stay too far from the BBQ when your food is cooking, as we are normally in a friendly atmosphere that often makes us forget the BBQ.
