1 duck, whole 2 kg
2 tsp salt 9 g
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp coriander seeds, ground 1 g
1/4 tsp peppercorns, ground 1 g
1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder 3 g
1 tsp gingerroot, grated 4 g
3 tbsp miso (fermented soybean paste) 45 g
1 tbsp soy sauce 15 mL
3 tbsp orange juice 45 mL
1 tbsp honey 22 g
1 tsp sesame seed oil 5 mL


  1. In a small bowl, combine salt, chopped garlic, coriander seeds, peppercorns, five-spice powder, and grated ginger. Set aside.
  2. Make crosshatched slits in the skin of the duck (about 20-30 slits in total). Rub the skin and inside of duck with the spice rub. Place the duck on a plate and put in the fridge, uncovered, for at least 12 h, up to 24 h.
  3. Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F. Remove the duck from the fridge 30 min before putting in the oven.
  4. Put the duck on a roasting tray, breast side down. Roast in the oven for 1 h 30 min. Take the duck out of the oven and remove cooking juice using a baster. Put the duck back in the oven, breast side up, then roast for another 45 min to 1 h, until a thermometer inserted into the duck should register 75°C/165°F.
  5. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Remove the duck from the oven and increase the temperature to 260°C/500°F. Baste the duck with half of the mixture. Put the duck back into the oven 5 min. Take it out of the oven then baste with the remaining mixture. Roast an additional 3-5 min, until the skin is crispy and nicely coloured. A thermometer inserted into the duck should register 82°C/180°F.
  6. Take the duck out of the oven then loosely cover with aluminum foil. Let rest for 10 min, then serve.
