DIRECTIONS

  • Clean the duck and salt only from inside 2-3 hours before roasting. Add one tablespoon of marjoram inside the duck to cover inside meat.
  • Heat oven to 250°C If there is enough fat inside duck, remove this fat and melt it separately in small pot; add lard. Heat lard and pour over duck’s skin (that way we close pores on skin).
  • Immediately put the duck into hot oven, roast 20 minutes on 250°C and than reduce heat to 180°C Last 20 minutes roast again on 200°C
  • Duck weight 2500 g need about 120 minutes roasting.
  • Start cutting the duck after 15 minutes resting outside. Use this time to remove fat drippings you will need for “mlinci”.
