How to Make Roast Duck
This is the most forgiving and delicious duck recipe you’ll ever find. By slow-cooking duck with aromatics until it’s as tasty and tender as confit, then broiling it until the skin is shatter-crisp, this dish manages to play to all of the bird’s strengths.
In a small roasting pan, spread half of the chopped onions, parsley, thyme, garlic, bay leaves and celery. Prick the duck skin all over with a fork and rub with salt, black pepper and herbes de Provence. Set the duck halves on the vegetables, cut sides down.
