  • 1 5- pound duck
  • 2 oranges quartered
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • ΒΌ cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Setting aside 3 pieces of quartered orange, place the remaining wedges into the duck. Tie the legs together with kitchen string. Lightly pierce the skin with a fork (without piercing the meat). This allow the fat to drip out while roasting.
  3. Combine marmalade and soy sauce in a bowl, rubbing 3 tbsp under the skin by the breast meat. Sprinkle with cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Place breast side down in a roasting pan.
  4. After an hour, drain the fat and flip the duck so that its breast-side up. Continue roasting, basting with remaining marmalade mixture every 15-20 minutes. After 1 hour, check the temperature by the thigh without touching the bone (should register at 165 degrees F).
  5. Let rest for 15 minutes and serve with fresh greens.
