In this blog post, we will go over some tips on cooking ducks so that you too can enjoy duck’s succulent flavour!
Cooking ducks can be an interesting way to introduce a slice of new meat into your diet. Since they are larger than most other birds, you will have enough for leftovers which is great because their unique flavour has been known to convert many people who were originally afraid of trying them!
Duck is most commonly found in Asian cuisine, but it can also make European dishes. You can roast a duck, slow cook it in a crockpot, or turn it into a succulent soup. You also have the option of making exotic dishes from all over the world, such as Russian golubtsy and Chinese Peking Duck.
Different Ways of Preparing Duck:
Duck is meat that can be prepared in many different ways. Duck breast, duck leg confit and preparation for roasted duck are all great dishes to try out! Ducks have also been known to convert people who were originally afraid of trying them due to their unique flavour. So, if you want something sweet or savoury, there are recipes for both to try out!
If you want a whole meal, roast the duck with some veggies and serve it on a bed of roasted or mashed potatoes. Then, you will never go back to chicken again!
Some tips for making duck:
- After you buy your duck, rinse it and air dry for a few hours.
If was killed humanely (without being commercially farmed), there may still be some blood left on their insides, making them taste bitter if cooked directly after killing.
- When you are ready to cook, preheat your oven.
You can either stuff or roast the duck whole, but if it is too big for one person, consider cooking two smaller ducks instead of trying to fit a huge one in the oven!
- When roasting, use a rack and baste it often to prevent the skin from burning.
Baste it with butter or oil so that the duck won’t dry out during cooking!
- When roasting, cook it at a temperature of 350 degrees.
Cook for about an hour per pound, and make sure to check on the cooking process from time to time!
- After roasting, allow it to rest for at least fifteen minutes.
The meat will be less likely to come off the bone if you wait a while before serving!
