Recipe for Duck Legs with Grilled Plums

Duck, It's What's For Dinner

Last weekend, I met up with some friends at a nearby butcher shop. The place is known for quality meats, and on this particular morning the duck legs looked mighty tasty. So I picked up a pair of them and went home for a cooking adventure.

I came across a recipe for roasted duck breast, but I adapted it to suit the legs. However, as much as I love dark meat, I think breasts would actually have been a better choice. It's a nice pairing of fresh plums and duck, and actually comes together in a short amount of time. To see how to put it together for yourself,

.

Note: Bon Appétit called this recipe "roasted," but I think they actually meant to say "fried in its own fat." The duck skin actually lets out quite a bit of grease, and if you're not careful it'll pool up. For my execution, I halved the recipe and used two duck legs instead.

I grew up eating too much duck, grandpa was a hunter, and although I really like it I don't like the fat. I don't like skin on anything so mine is tossed out always.

I like the taste of duck but find it's often so greasy. But after looking at this recipe and the accompanying photos, I think I'll give it another whirl.

Yeah she mentions she chose to use legs instead. :) Duck is soo yummy, one of the best things I discovered about living in the UK was it was far easier to get....I fell in love with this as a meat, especially when prepared via French methods. Its harder to find in Finland, sadly, at least where I live but I am not giving up yet. Looks delish!
