Duck Breast Schnitzel is a very fast, easy, tasty way to fix duck:

2 boneless duck breasts * flatten with meat mallot 1/8 to 1/4-inch thickness

Salt and pepper to taste
Butter or margarine

Dredge duck in flour and then dip in egg. Dredge in breadcrumbs. Salt and pepper to taste.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add duck and fry until golden brown, turning once.

*You may want to brine for a few hours (or overnight) before hand. If so, mix 1/2 cup hot water with 1/8 cup coarse salt and 1 teaspoon sugar. Stir to dissolve. Pour into a large bowl add 2 cups cold water. Rinse and add the breasts. Cover, refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight. Make sure to rinse and pat dry before cooking or they will be too salty.
