6 duck breasts
Salt and pepper to taste
1 T olive oil

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Season the duck breast with salt and pepper. In a large sauté pan, over medium heat, add olive oil. Add the duck breast, skin side down. Sear for 6 minutes. Flip the duck breast over and place the pan in the oven. Roast the breasts for 8 to 10 minutes for medium rare. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the duck breasts to rest 2 to 3 minutes before slicing. Slice each duck breast, on the bias, into 1/2-inch pieces and fan around sweet potatoes.
