Smoked duck breast is a delicacy that any enthusiastic foodie is sure to love. Keeping hold of the rich flavour that everyone adores with duck, it remains tender and moist – and is a brilliant source of protein for the entire family. Whether you’re choosing it as the meat of choice for a family picnic, special gathering or a treat at the weekend, we want you to get the most out of your succulent selection. This is why we bring you 3 side dishes you can serve alongside smoked duck breast to get the most out of every single mouthful.

  1. Roasted Vegetables

Sometimes, the simplest dishes are the best. And, this can be said for roasted vegetables. There is some kind of sorcery that goes on inside that oven when you toss a bunch of your favourite veg together with olive oil and roast until crisp. We love broccoli, squash, potatoes, mushrooms and peppers – each one bringing its unique taste to the table. And, when served alongside smoked duck breast, it is an easy way to make a filling yet healthy meal for everyone.

  1. Mashed Potato With Caramelised Onions

A partnership made in heaven. Mashed potato is a staple for many people’s diets and it’s not hard to see why. A knob of butter, a splash of milk and a sprinkle of seasoning and you turn the humble potato into a side dish everyone will be delving into. If you then add in the sweet, sticky topping of caramelised onions, you have a different side dish but brings out the best flavours with everything in your place. And, once again, you get a meal that will fill you up and bring warmth during the winter.

  1. Mashed pumpkin

For something different, or to add more colour to your plate, mashed pumpkin is perfect! It has a creamy texture and soft flavour that accentuates the smoked duck too. Mix the mashed pumpkin with sprinkles of parmesan and a handful of rocket. This is the ideal dish for cold evenings or to bring to the table when everyone’s dining al fresco during the warmer months.
