  1. Wipe your grids down with oil. Preheat grill to high on one side. Or use your infrared for this. But you still want the grill preheated to 450°F.
  2. Pat the duck breasts dry with paper towel. Score the skin of the breast in a diamond pattern. Massage the salt, pepper, and garlic into them.
  3. Add the peas, and about ½ a cup of stock to the rice. Stir until fully soaked up by the rice. Repeat until the rice is tender. Once tender, stir in the parmesan cheese.
  4. Meanwhile sear the duck breasts, meat side down for a minute or two if you are using a regular grill. For infrared, only about 45 seconds. Flip the breasts and sear the skin side.
  5. Turn your grill down, if you only have one burner, or if you have more than one burner, turn off all but one burner and move the duck breasts to the “off” side of the grill, skin side down. Cook for 10 minutes over indirect heat. Flip the breasts again and cook for another 4 minutes. It is okay to have the duck a little pink in the middle.
  6. Remove the breasts from the grill, cover with tinfoil and let stand for 5 minutes.
  7. Slice the duck and serve atop a bed of risotto.
