This is a GREAT duck recipe, especially for someone who has never made duck before. It was delicious and so easy. I added lemon wedges, garlic cloves, thyme, and savoury inside the cavity, and added extra seasoning (garlic powder, seasoning salt). Use drippings instead of added butter. Elevate on chopped potatoes, so that you get a tasty side dish. Poke holes in the duck too. Could use smoked paprika instead.
Making this tonight......will report back if it is a keeper or EPIC fail. On a side note licking the spoon after stirring the honey, orange juice and butter mixture is pretty tasty!!!! Honey & orange roasted duck recipe
