Five Spice Roast Duck

Duck vs Chicken!! Which one you prefer? I rarely buy duck because it's has very lesser meat and the price is more expensive then chicken .Furthermore,the duck sold here comes in frozen form..nothing freshly slaughter from the slaughter house like chicken or beef.I guess the demand is not great ,so the duck breeder prefer to froze their product for better quality.It's been awhile since I roast duck for Eliot..He seem quite like duck better if compare to me.I'm not really fond of duck but I don't mind eating it once a while.This time I used 5 spices powder as the main seasoning rub and stuff with onion and orange into the cavity to get better flavor and moistness..Too bad I was in hurry,didn't get the skin a good prick before seasoning.Wish it's have crispy skin to look good but I don't mind if it's doesn't look crisp because we didn't eat the skin if it's has crispy skin.It's for healthy reason.Anyway,the duck is delicious and have tangy orangee flavor!!


I duck ,thaw in fridge if in frozen form,about 4-5 lbs,remove giblets from cavity
1 tbsp 5 spice powder
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 orange,cut to quarter
1 small onion,peeled and cut 1/2
maltose or honey for brushing

1:Wash and check any feathers still attached,remove and use fork to prick the skin over 50 times or more..
2:combine all seasoning in a bowl,mix well.Rub the seasoning all over the duck inside out thoroughly.Stuff orange and onion into the cavity.Wrap the seasoning duck over aluminum foil and store in fridge overnight.
3:Pre-heat oven to 425 F.Place the duck on a baking tray.Roast duck for 40 minutes and turn the top facing down.Roast again for another 30 minutes..Remove duck from oven and brush with maltose or honey.
4:Rest for 15 minutes before cut and serve warm..

That looks very delicious. I seldom cook duck because I don't really know how to cook it well. I may try this. Looks easy.
