Asian-style twice seared duck breast with sesame-infused stir fried veg

I'll fess up in advance ... this isn't strictly a BGE recipe. I cooked the duck in a sous vide, which was always the plan. I wanted to do the pre and post sear in the MMX and then use it to stir fried the veg. However Thor decided to park the mother of all rain storms over us (rain literally bouncing off the patio) so I retreated to the kitchen. Full details here:

Plated ... SWMBO has a new f1.4 lens and wanted to get arty with the sauce:

Large BGE and MMX, both with platesetter and cast iron grid. Superpeel for pizza, iDevice for temperature.
Cooking on the large in deepest, darkest England since Oct 2015. MMX added to the family Mar 2016.

  • Damn that looks good! And inspiring. Did a couple whole ducks a year or two ago, think I need to revisit the "other" fowl 
    In Atlanta, either putting fires out at work or gettin' them started at home...

    I knew I was not worthy just reading the title.  
    What a cook and presentation.  Magazine quality pics right there.  Congrats to all who contributed.

    Cheers folks, was particularly pleased with the sauce on that one. The combo of raw ingredients and jus from the sous vide was incredible.

    @lousubcap you're always worthy, bud :).
