Much as I like duck, it’s very rare that we cook with it. I had an abortive attempt a couple of years back which did not go well, and I’ve never really tried it since. This recipe comes from Nigella’s How To Eat which hasn’t let me down so far so if I was going to find a good duck recipe anywhere, this was the place.
It’s a very simple recipe – deceptively so. I think the toughest part was peeling the oranges. The combination of duck and orange is classic, but the mint and chilli here work really well.
