Who doesn’t love a good roast duck with charred crispy skin and juicy meat? Many of us think that roast duck can’t be made at home. That’s what we want to demystify! Anyone can make this dish as long as the duck can fit in your oven! The crucial step is to make sure the skin is aired dry enough before the actual roasting process.
The advantage of roasting a duck versus, let’s say a chicken is that the ducks are fattier and its fats will begin to soften and melt during the roasting process, giving it a gamey and alluring aroma.
Go ahead and try roasting a duck this CNY. Guaranteed to amaze your family!
