    Ideas for duck?

    Primal Fuel
    So, I bought a duck leg. Figured that before I order a whole duck, I should try a part first.

    I found some recipes by googling, but I'd love to hear some tried and loved ones from here.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Lucky duck!

    Every time I've been served duck at a fancy restaurant it's been rare in the middle and almost charred on the outside - like tuna is served, almost. I don't know if that's a duck thing or a restaurant thing, though!

    Generally speaking, duck and fruit go well together. Get creative!

    Ohhh... duck with mandarin oranges. Mmmm....

    It's also nice rubbed with a paste made of crushed garlic, fresh grated ginger, a touch of tamari and enough honey to bind the paste (I use a teaspoon of honey for a whole duck to be divided between 5 of us, so a drop or two should do).

    Same. Incidentally, I do NOT like that. I cook mine thoroughly.

    Good hints and ideas!

    Has anyone done a duck confit? (Say con-fee with your best Maurice Chevalier accent.) It seems truly decadent.

    This recipe: Easy Duck Confit Recipe | Simply Recipes is a little time consuming, but is very easy and delicious!

    While the duck was resting after I took it out of the oven, I put most of the rendered fat into a pan and made duck fat french fries. They were awesome, and I understand why they've become so trendy. Some recipes recommend dipping them in aioli, but I thought they were stand alone good.
