Duck a L'Orange

I've given this retro duck dish a makeover and simplified it as much as possible. Using the zest and juice of fresh oranges and adding no extra sweetness this simple one-pot has a lovely freshness.



Serves 4⠀


INGREDIENTS⠀


4 duck legs⠀

The juice of 2 oranges zest of one

A few slices of orange to serve

2 small onions chopped ⠀

2 cloves crushed garlic ⠀

1 pack mange-tout⠀


METHOD

Pan fry the seasoned duck. Start it in a cold pan with no oil turning it up to a high heat for approximately 5 minutes or until golden.⠀

Turn the duck over to colour the other side.⠀

Drain the excess oil. Remove the duck from the pan and set aside.⠀

Now add the onions until translucent.⠀

Add the garlic for 2 minutes and season. Pour in the orange juice and zest and bring to a simmer.⠀

Return the duck to the pan skin side up, place the lid on and cook in an oven of 150 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
