Citrus Rubbed Whole Duck

Submitted by: MSDESERTRODENT

Introduction

From Emeril Lagasse, this is a great duck recipe. The citrus aroma fills the kitchen while it's cooking. The skin is crisp, and the duck is moist and tender.

  • According to the nutrition information, the duck contributes .75 oz serving...out of a Five Pound Duck, feeding 4 people, each gets 3/4 of One Ounce of meat? Something wrong there...I think the calorie count may be very understated. - 3/5/10
