Oven Roasted Duck with Coconut Cherry Reduction

Fresh cherries are very tart and go along so well with the fatty duck. The textures are great with the crispy skin and warm cherries.

Duck Ingredients

Coconut Cherry Reduction

  • 2 cups cherries
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • pinch sea salt


Duck Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.

  2. Rinse and pat dry the duck legs.

  3. Place duck legs into a large baking pan or dish and coat the duck legs in dried mustard, basil and thyme.

  4. Place pan in the oven and cook for 60-65 mins or until the duck legs are brown on the outside.

Coconut Cherry Reduction Directions

  1. While the duck is cooking you can make the cherry sauce. Place the cherries in a sauce pan on the stove and turn onto medium heat.

  2. Add the coconut milk to the pan.

  3. Allow mixture to heat until cherries soften and start to break apart (10-15 minutes).

  4. Use a potato masher and crush remaining cherries until you reach your desired consistency (I like the sauce a but chunky).

  5. To serve, pour the cherry reduction over the duck legs and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you don't have fresh cherries, you can use frozen.
