DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place duck on a double thickness of aluminum foil, enough to completely wrap it. Stir 2 tbsp oil, 2 tsp tamarind, 1 tbsp salt and shrimp paste in a bowl. Rub mixture all over outside of duck. Set aside.
  • Puree remaining oil and tamarind, plus sugar, kecap manis, garlic, shallots, candlenuts, chiles, galangal, ginger, turmeric, and salt in a food processor until smooth. Stir in curry leaves.
  • Stuff half the paste inside duck and rub remaining paste on outside. Wrap tightly in foil and place in a roasting pan; bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of leg reads 175 degrees F (about 1 1/2 hours).
  • Remove foil and increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F. Bake until duck is brown and slightly crisp (25–30 minutes). Rest 20 minutes before carving.
  • Garnish with Kaffir lime leaves and serve with cooked rice, sliced cucumber and tomatoes, if you like.
