CtBF ~ MPK: Counterfeit Duck Confit

Simplified duck confit aka counterfeit!
 
Served fusion style with bryani rice, poppadoms and dahl, with horseradish cream for some heat!  Hubby originally exclaimed... I cannot eat duck, meat's too tough!  But came home to find one leg missing!

 I ordered a whole duck (frozen) from my usual poultry supplier and got them to defrost it and separate it into two whole legs, the breast meat in one piece, two wings, and chopped up the carcass for me.  Marinated the two legs and the wings overnight with substituting jalapeno infused tequila for the original spirit called for (forgotten what it was - oh vodka!).  Roasted them in dish all huddled  snugly for 2.5 hours, basting at one hour intervals.  Not too shabby eh the results!

This was so good, wasn't it? And not tough at all!

I have frozen ducks in the fridge too. So many ways to flavor and cook them. Can't go wrong with the confit.

What beautifully burnished skin. This is one of my favourite recipes from this book...it was a such a revelation to me, yet so easy.

That looks perfect. I had to research the rest of your plate because the names were not familiar to me, but they all turned out quite interesting. I loved this recipe, very tasty and certainly a simple one to prepare.

Sounds like that jalapeno spirit gave it some extra kick. Looks like a delicious meal!
When I met David last week, I told him I'd just made this. He said someone else made it using soy sauce for the spirit and Chinese 5-spice for the spices. That sounds like a nice variation too.

Wow, looks delicious! I have not cooked duck for ages!
