Guidelines To Cooking Duck Leg

Cooking duck leg


The key to cooking great duck legs is cooking them slowly on a low heat. Trust us, they are worth the wait.

  • Preheat the oven to 160c
  • Piece the skin all over with a skewer or a knife to release the fat as it cook
  • Generously season the duck leg with rock salt and ground black pepper on both sides
  • For a little extra “Zing” rub the legs with Chinese Five Spice
  • Place in a cold tray and place into the oven for 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Remove the duck leg. The skin should be nice and crisp and the meat falling away from the bone

Then Serve

Either serve whole or shred the meat off and serve in a salad, wraps or as part of a stir fry.
