Thais love their curries. And make curries with roasted duck and you sure have a hit.
Roasted duck in red curry has grown in popularity in recent years that this dish has become one of well-known Thai food among expats and foreigners.
Just like any meat, there are a few things to remember when roasting duck.
Duck, in particular, is made, in quite large percentage, of duck fat. So while you may think you have a big bird, once cooked, it can actually shrink.
Just like chicken, it is highly recommended to cook it until it’s no longer pink. Thus, it needs de-fatting or it will taste greasy. To de-fat the duck, you have to score and prick it all over to encourage the fat to run out.
If you want a crispy skin, make sure to dry the skin well first, preferably overnight before defatting. Don’t add any liquid to the skin side of the duck as it cooks.
After roasting a duck, you’d definitely end up with a lot of fat. Don’t throw it away. Google some ways on how you can best use.
