Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How long does a roast duck take?

Season the duck all over with salt and pepper. Place the duck on a roasting tin and roast in the oven for 40 minutes. When the duck is cooked cover with foil and rest for 10-20 minutes before serving.

How do you crisp up a duck?

Place duck legs into an oiled baking dish. Season generously with salt. Cook in a 300 degree oven for 90 minutes to 2 hours. Crank the heat up to 375 for the last 15 minutes to brown the skin and serve.

How do you make ducks taste better?

Brine the duck for at least 12 to 15 hours. Twenty-four hours in a brine won’t hurt them, but beyond 24 hours, they’ll get a bit too salty. Duck breast fillets can be brined for six to 12 hours. If you’re short on time, just a few hours in the brine will always help.
