Asian Style Oven Baked Duck Legs

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by JustJanS

I bought a bag of duck legs recently. There were 10 of them in a 2kg bag, all beautifully trimmed and ready to cook. Normal eaters might eat one each but we ate two and our son ate 3 of them!

This marinade is wonderful! I subbed dry white wine and a tsp. of ground ginger for the ginger wine ( I will have to take a trip to the Asian market to find that!) I used duck leg quarters (leg and thigh). This marinade would be good on chicken thighs, also, and maybe on pork! This is going into my marinade collection! Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinate duck in remaining ingredients for about 8 hours (from the morning until dinner time is good). Turn occasionally through the day.
  2. Heat oven to 160c/330f.
  3. Remove the duck from the marinade and lay on a foil lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 2 hours or until very tender.
  5. You may need to pour off the fat a couple of times during the cooking time.
  6. I served our duck on rice with Oriental Noodle Salad.
