About Honey Glazed Duck

You may have heard of the dish Honey Glazed Duck, maybe you think it’s a Asian recipe but it isn’t.

I had arranged the duck through my uncle who works at a poulterer. He indicated that the duck should have a crispy outer layer and tender meat on the inside. You quickly bake it for 6 minutes on the skin side and 4 minutes on the other side. The duck is ready in 10 minutes! It’s super easy to prepare.

I made the sauce from five ingredients. I wanted a sweet sauce that goes perfectly with the crispy layer and the meat of the duck. The ingredients I used are brandy, star anise, cinnamon, coriander, honey and unsalted butter. I have combined the ingredients by feeling. The numbers are given in the recipe below. After tasting I made some adjustments here and there, which ultimately resulted in a super rich sauce. A nice sauce that is easy to make and really makes a perfect addition. Below again the ingredients that I have used.
