    JustJanS's Note:

    We love duck as a treat when it's just the 2 of us and it goes really well with this Chinese style marinade. Prep time doesn't include marinading.

      This is absolutely gorgeous. Sooooo tasty. I used white wine vinegar instead of sherry wine vinegar - still tasted great. Better when marinaded over night, but about 5 hours will do. The duck fat/skin mostly drips off, but is used to make a light sauce - fantastic but I'm sure very fattening! Make this regularly and serve with new potatoes and french beans and a good bottle of Red Bordeaux.

      I agree this was delicious. I roasted a whole duck (6lbs for 2.5hours at 190C) and it came out beautifully. The skin was especially tasty and juices made a good sauce to accompany it. A good reccommendation would be adding a little bit of water into the tray below the roasting rack so that the duck steams as well as roasts - very succulent.

      i made this last night for dinner, excellent dish. but i cooked it a bit differently. after marinating i put the breasts in a grill pan, fat side down to eliminate some of the fat and brown the rest, then i briefly grilled the other side. then i removed it to the roasting pan with the marinade and basted it, roasted it in the 400 oven for about 15 minutes to cook it through. we really enjoyed the flavor and the skin was crispy. simply delicious!
