Method

This delicious, yet easy tray bake recipe features duck leg, shallots, orange and a range of fragrant flavours which simmer and mix together beautifully. The inclusion of 5 spice, anise, bay leaves and honey leave a tantalizingly crispy skin on the duck which will delight the taste buds. Perfect for a winter warmer recipe!

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, 170°C Fan, Gas Mark 5.
  2. Place the potato wedges on a lined baking tray. Add the duck, shallots and carrots. Mix together all the cooking liquid ingredients (except the fresh coriander) and pour over the potato mixture.. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 1 hour.
  3. Remove the tray from the oven and remove the foil. Return the tray back into the oven for a further  30 minutes to crisp up the duck skin. Remove from the oven, cover and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Garnish with the coriander and serve.
