    MarieRynr's Note:

    Roast duck goes with anything tangy; my choice is grapefruit, with fruit segments served in a sauce made with fresh ginger.

      This has been a favourite recipe of my husbands for quite a few years. It looks very pretty arranged on a platter or individual plates and the combination of flavours is excellent. Makes a delicious special, but not too complicated, dinner for two.
