Steps

  • Place the duck legs in a zip lock bag, add all the marinade ingredients. Marinade for atleast one hour in the fridge.
  • Heat the oven to 180 degrees. Place duck legs (include the marinade) round side up on a roasting tray lined with kitchen paper. Roast for 40 minutes, then turn heat up to 220 degrees, cook the duck legs for a further 10 minutes to cook medium – well done.
