Half way through the cooking time, baste the duck with pan juices, and spread the sliced figs around the duck breasts. Return to oven to finish baking.
Remove from oven, slice the duck breasts lengthwise in 6 mm slices, add the pan juices and arrange the caramelized fig slices around the duck.
The meat will be very tender, juicy and pink, the skin will be crusty and delicious and the figs will compliment both beautifully.
