Christmas Sweet & Spicy Glazed Turbo Duck

 

Duck is known to be a bit more fatty than conventional roast chicken, and so trying it in your trusty turbo broiler could help you eliminate some of the fat content.

Following this recipe will leave you with succulent perfectly cooked meat, greaseless, and skin that is nice and crispy with a nice glaze.


INGREDIENTS

Whole Duck
¼ cup honey 
¼ cup molasses
3 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp or 1 tbsp Sriracha chili sauce(adjust depending on preference)
salt


DIRECTIONS

Thoroughly defrost duck. (Defrost in refrigerator for 2-3 days.)

Remove giblets and neck from interior of duck, save these for making stock.
Rinse duck in cool running water and pat dry. Prick skin, careful not to pierce the meat. You can make a diamond pattern by scoring into the duck skin and fat without cutting into the meat. Sprinkle the cavity with a little kosher salt.
Truss the duck (tie together the legs so that it is easier to handle) and put it in your turbo broiler. Cook at 350°F for 30 to 40minutes on one side and flip it.

Tip: Check the duck at the 30 minute mark and see if it is good enough to turn around. If not, let it cook for 10 more minutes then flip. While the duck cooks, prepare the glaze.
Combine honey, molasses, orange juice, soy sauce, and hot sauce and bring to a simmer. Keep mixing under medium heat until it gets thick and syrupy. Set aside until the duck cooks.

When the duck is just about done, another 30 minutes, take it out of the turbo oven and brush with the glaze, make sure to completely cover it.
Stick the duck back into the turbo broiler and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes until it is nicely mahogany color. Serve with roasted vegetables or mashed potatoes on the side.

Festive Roasted Salmon in Butter

 

It’s fun preparing for the holidays but admittedly it can be quite exhausting with all the preparations lined up. This recipe is a surefire way you can have a dressed up holiday dinner with a fantastic centerpiece (but the effort put in will just be our own little secret.) It’s astonishingly easy!

 

INGREDIENTS
900 grams to 1.1 kg Salmon Whole Fillet Skin On 
3 tbsp mixed aromatic herbs for fish (or alternatively minced dill or parsley)
4 tbsp (½ stick) butter
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Lemon Slices


DIRECTIONS


Choose an oven-safe skillet that will perfectly fit your salmon. A skillet is or a well seasoned cast iron pan are good choices as it will give a nice texture to the roasted fish. Alternatively, you can use a regular baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Place butter and half of the herbs in 475°F preheated oven, until butter begins to sizzle.


Season salmon with salt and pepper. Add the salmon to the pan, with skin on the top. Roast for 4 minutes. Take out of the oven and peel the skin away. The skin should peel right off. If not, try to cook it a couple of minutes longer. You can choose to leave the skin on, if you prefer.


Roast for another 3 to 5 minutes. The timing will depend on how well done you would like your salmon to be. For every half-inch of salmon, roast 4 to 6 minutes. At 4 minutes, salmon will still be a touch rare, 6 minutes will thoroughly cook it. You know that it is done when it flakes easily. With a tiny portion of the fish along the thickest part, try to pry it gently with a fork. When it flakes easily, it’s ready.


Transfer to a nice serving dish with some more herbs and round slices of lemon. Serve.
