    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 6 duck legs

    • zest of 1 orange in thin strips

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a deep frypan over medium heat. Salt and pepper the duck legs then brown on all sides. Set aside.
    2. Saute the onion in the oil and duck fat until soft. Stir in the cornflour. Return the duck to the frypan with the orange juice and water. Cover and simmer 40 minutes until tender. Uncover and simmer 10 more minutes to thicken the sauce.
    3. Place the duck on a serving plate and garnish with zest strips. Serve the sauce in a sauce boat.

    This recipe was so quick and easy. I did add a drop of Cointreau and my daughter loved it. I made it for one so divided quantities.  -  28 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    The duck breasts I used were a bit on the small side, but sauce was lovely. Definitely worth making again, but with more meat next time as it was so yummy..  -  10 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
