  • Squeeze two oranges and pour the juice over the duckling.
  • Place duckling in a cold oven, put the heat on up to160 °C and cook for about 1 hour 30 minutes. Regularly baste with orange juice from the tin, and possibly adding a little bit of water.
  • Remove from the oven, pour the juice from the last orange over duckling and mix this juice with the cooking juices.


My tip: as for roast chicken and unlike on these photos, I start by turning the poultry upside down, bottom against the dish, flip the duckling 30 min before the end to raost it. This way breasts, in contact with the liquids at the bottom of the dish ,will be very tender, less dry.
Note: The cooking time depend on the weight of duckling,
