Duck can make for a delicious meal, but only if cooked right. Many people today thought to cook it like a regular chicken or turkey and have ended up being more disappointed than something. And so here is a short guide on how to cook duck, or more precisely, how to make crispy-skin steamed duck.

The Necessary Ingredients:

To start things off, you will obviously need a duck... for the sake of replicating this recipe, it will have to weigh around 4 lbs. You will need 2 teaspoons of brandy, 75 mL of coarse salt, 4 smashed cloves of garlic, 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, 4 sprigs fresh rosemary, two teaspoons of freshly-chopped rosemary, and two tablespoons of grated pepper.

Preparing the Meal:

First of all, you ought to take care to rinse the duck correctly and dry it up. Use the brandy to rub the duck's within as well as its outside, immediately after which you will need to do the same thing with the salt. following placing it on a dish, cover it up in saran wrap and refrigerate it for a couple of days, turning it each day. Meanwhile, take care to cut off some lemon strips.

Once that process has been completed, rinse the duck once once again employing cold water and dry it. Cut off the excess skin, the tailbone and any extra fat.

Combine the garlic, the chopped rosemary and the pepper in small bowl making use of a fork, and once the mixture is complete rub it on the duck's within. right after that, put eachthing in the water, apart from the rosemary sprigs, maple syrup and lemon strips, and boil it. Place the duck in it with the breasts going through up on a bamboo vaporer, after which you will need to place the remaining ingredients on top of it. Place every singlething on top of your pot of boiling water, and then squeeze a few mL of lemon juice on top of the duck. steam it on medium heat for around 75 minutes.

Once you have removed it, mix the maple syrup with some lemon fruit juice and brush it over the duck's backside side. Then, place it breasts side down at 425F or 220C in an oven for 15 minutes. Once the duck is golden, turn it over and roast for another 15 minutes, and that's all there is to it.
