I knew this would be good, and I wasn't disappointed! It was easy and the smell as it cooked was mouth watering. The only change made was to use fresh ginger as I always think dried ginger is for baking and fresh (if you have it on hand) for savoury.

This is one of the best Roast Ducks my family has had! I had company last night and everyone could not stop saying how good it was! I will use this one over and over!

This was really very good, but given that duck skin is so greasy, most of the flavor went into the skin and therefore we didn't taste it much because we don't eat the skin. My suggestion would be to put the marinade in a baster and inject it under the skin to flavor the meat more. Great recipe! Thanks for posting!
