Roasted Green Tomato Soup With Pesto

Oven Roasted Crispy Whole Duck & Figgy Orange Glaze

Roasting a whole duck should not be any more intimidating than roasting a chicken. My oven roasted duck recipe involves a delicious figgy orange maple glaze that pairs perfectly with the rich and flavorful duck meat.

Step by Step Instructions


Step 1

Get all of your ingredients and equipment out. Measure out the ingredients for the glaze.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix softened butter, salt, spices, herbs. Make a butter paste. If your duck was brined skip the salt!

Step 3

Place the duck on a large sheet of foil. I actually prefer to put the duck on unbleached parchment paper and then on top of the foil, but that is up to you and optional.

Step 4

Spread the butter paste on all sides of the duck inside and out. Then add sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary too.
