You can replace duck with chicken, it works almost as well.

  2. Sear the duck fillets in a pan on a high heat staring by the skin side.
  3. Preheat your oven at 180°C with a grid and a tray with water. When the duck fillets is seared on all sides, cook it on the grid in the oven for 20-30 minutes (depending how you like it). When it is ready, let the duck rest and cool down for 5-10 minutes.

    2. Using a peeler, cut the carrots in very thin slices
    3. Remove the shell from the shrimps  and clean the shrimps
