This duck legs recipe is an amazing Mediterranean celebration dish. You can have it on a weekend lunch or dinner or on a celebration and special occasion. I found a local supplier of ducks not too long ago and I fall in love with cooking ducks. The ducks are an unbelievable upgrade to my meals and I will publish more outstanding duck recipes soon. They are a great addition to my low carb Mediterranean cooking.

These duck legs are so good and fatty unlike chicken 1 or 2 legs of duck is enough to make you full. making the duck legs is easy but it takes some time. To start you have to cook the duck legs in a skillet with the skin side down. We will cook them until they get a nice brown color over medium heat. While the dish is cooking it’s a great time to start heating the oven to 200 c/400f and also cut the vegetables. For this recipe we used onion. celery stalk, carrot and you can also add fennel and chicken stock. For a side dish, i cooked sweet potatoes and cauliflower with some garlic and onion mixed with olive oil.

When the legs are evenly cooked and getting a nice brown color turn them and cook them for another 1-2 minutes. Take out the duck legs and put aside along with most of the fat and cook the vegetables with the remaining fat. It should take about 10 to 15 min to cook the vegetables. When they softened bring the duck legs back to the pan skin side up. Add the chicken stock to the pan and cover the legs halfway only. Bring to boil. When boiled it’s time to move everything to the preheated oven for 30 min.

 

After 30 min lower the oven heat to 175c/350f and let it cook until the duck is tender it will take 30min to 90 min. The duck is ready when you can easily cut the duck meat with a knife. You can keep it in a warm oven a little longer up to one hour. Serve hot with a side dish of your choice.
