  1. Recipe Instructions In a deep bowl, mix water and salt until dissolved. Immerse duck breast until completely covered in saltwater and cure for 6 hours. Remove duck breasts from water and pat dry with a paper towel. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute duck breasts, skin-side down, in a 12-inch skillet for approximately 4 minutes. Arrange duck breasts in a roasting pan and roast for 4 minutes. Pickled Mushrooms: In a large saucepan, bring all ingredients except mushrooms to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, remove from heat. Stir in mushrooms and let ingredients rest for at least 6 hours. To serve: Slice the duck breast into 1/8-inch thick medallions. Spoon a generous amount of pickled mushrooms onto a plate, and arrange several slices of each half duck breast. Drizzle truffle oil over duck and serve. This recipe yields 4 servings.
