Re: new recipes with a sweeter touch

Try it with cherries. I posted a recipe in the Foodology thread a few months ago for duck breast with cherries or other soft fruit.  It's a Raymond Blanc recipe originally, and very good.  We've made it with blackberries and raspberries in the past, and they do reduce to a jammy consistency, but are also still delicious.

Re: new recipes with a sweeter touch

Ah, found it.

2 duck breasts, trimmed
110g cherries
5tbsp honey
1 glass red wine
1tsp mixed spice

Season the duck with salt and pepper, slash through the skin, and fry skin-side down for 5-6 minutes.  Turn, and add the cherries, honey, wine and spices.  Cook for a further 5-6 minutes.  Remove the duck and set aside to rest.  Reduce the sauce, and adjust the seasoning.  I found I needed more honey and spice than I originally added. 

Cappelli d'angelo with cream and mustard

Cook half a pack of angel hair pasta (250g).  Mix together 6tbsp double cream, 8tbsp white wine, and 2tbsp whole grain mustard.  When the pasta is done, drain and stir into the cream mix.  The acidity of the vinegar goes well with the honeyed, spiced duck.

Notes:  I want to try the duck made with port, instead of wine, but by the time I thought of this the bottle of port I had had mysteriously depleted itself... Also, I think this might be nice with raspberries or blackberries, although I'd add them at the end of the sauce reducing time to avoid a pippy jammy goo.

Re: new recipes with a sweeter touch

I am not too fond of coriander (the herb/cilantro) but love the spice coriander.  So I guess it depends on that. Orange and carrot is somewhat of a classic and makes a nice balance of sweet and sour. With sea food: Nice idea!
For a quick sea food recipe try this:
Fry salmon or shrimps (or whatever you like) in olive oil. Just before it is done, pour over some cointreau (or other orange liqueur). Reduce for just a second. Add a spoonful cream or flambee if you like. Nice with some freshly ground black pepper on top wink
