Chinese Roasted Duck Recipe with Figs
Chinese roasted duck is a popular main dish for celebrations like Chinese New Year. The dried figs are the best part of this roasted duck recipe.
- 2 tablespoons five spice powder
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 4 pounds duck
- 4 shallots
- 5 cloves garlic
- 1 cup Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Mission Figs
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons green onions (thinly sliced)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon mirin
Mix five spice powder and salt. Coat the duck pieces with the five spice mixture and let it marinate overnight.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the marinated duck pieces into a large baking dish.
Add the shallots, garlic, and Orchard Choice California Mission Dried Figs. Drizzle the vegetable oil over the top.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes.
While the duck is baking, combine soy sauce, sugar, and mirin in a sauce pan. Mix and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside.
After 40 minutes, remove the cover from the baking dish. Brush soy glaze on top of the duck. Increase the oven temperature to broil and bake for 10 more minutes.
Brush with the remaining soy glaze and top with minced green onions before serving.
