Article Date: Posted in Recipes

Roast DuckPerfect for fresh game or a duck straight from the supermarket! This recipe feeds two people.

Ingredients:

  • 1 duck

  • 1 orange

  • A pinch of salt and pepper

  • 6 tablespoons fresh orange juice

  • 4 tablespoons champagne

  • 3 egg yolks

  • 2 cups double cream

  • Peeled, sliced orange for decoration

Preparation:

  1. Wash duck and pat dry inside and out.

  2. Grate zest from the oranges and set aside.

  3. Peel the oranges and stuff the duck with peeled oranges.

  4. Add a little oil or goose/duck fat to roasting tin.

  5. Place duck breast side down in roasting tin (this helps keep the breast meat moist).

  6. Sprinkle zest and 3 tbsp spoons of orange juice over duck.

  7. Roast in a preheated oven depending on size of bird (usually about 35- 40 minutes in top right of AGA if you are using a wild duck – longer for fatter, farmed ducks)

  8. Remove from oven; discard orange pulp. Keep warm while preparing sauce.

For the sauce:

  1. Place cream and egg yolks in a shallow pan; heat gently.

  2. Add remaining orange juice, any juice left in the roasting tin (as long as it is not charred) and champagne a little at a time.

  3. If you have not added roast juices, add a little salt to taste.

  4. Allow sauce to come to a simmer; continue to heat for 15 seconds. Do not boil.

  5. Carve the duck onto warmed plates. Pour sauce over duck and garnish with fresh orange sections.

Additional recommendations:

Serve with a mixed baby leaf salad or selection of steamed baby vegetables and baby new potatoes, not forgetting a delicious glass of chilled champagne.
