My first experience eating duck was a duck curry recipe my aunt made in Guyana, it was amazing! That initial encounter made me loveeeee duck. Generally, I would only prepare it during the holidays and special occasions, but you can also enjoy this recipe as a weekend dinner. Add this delicious roasted duck to your favorite Fried Rice or Chow Mein recipe; this makes a perfect meal!
I remember making this roasted duck recipe for the first time during the holidays and it was finger-licking good! The duck is first marinated in Chinese sauces and spice, baked then deep fried. The addition of ginger, five spice powder, soy sauce and oyster sauce gave the duck so much flavor. Chinese is one of the 6 ethnic groups of Guyana therefore growing up I was able to witness a few delicious Chinese recipes and dishes. I wanted to utilize some of that knowledge to create my own unique roast duck recipe with ingredients you can easily access.
One of the important elements of this duck recipe is the nice brown reddish color of the duck. This is due to the addition of food coloring but if you have access to fermented red bean curd that is another way of getting that beautiful color.
I love to cut my duck into only a few pieces prior to cooking it to get all the seasoning, spices, and flavors into the meat. But you can also cut a few incisions on the whole duck to have the sauces and spices penetrate then roast. This duck is so mouth-watering.
I do hope you enjoy this recipe. Share with your friends and family. Also, do not forget to leave a comment if you tried this recipe.
If you have never tried duck before then this is the time. The duck is first baked then fried to perfection. This yields a crispy skin while the meat is tender and juicy. Enjoy the wonderful taste of duck right in the comfort of your home.”
