Preparation edit

  2. Mix all glaze ingredients together.

  5. Sit duck breast-up on a rack in an open container.
  6. Put in the refrigerator to chill overnight.

Cooking edit

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C)
  2. Put ½–1 inch (2.5 cm) of water in a roasting pan—this catches the grease that comes out from the duck while roasting and prevents it from smoking.
  3. Place green onions inside the duck cavity.
  4. Place the duck on a roasting rack in the roasting pan. Roast the duck for 15 minutes.
  5. Turn the duck breast-up, and roast for another 15 minutes.
  6. Turn oven heat to 375°F (190°C), and roast the duck until the internal temperature reaches a minimum of 180°F (test between the thigh, the thickest part of the duck/goose, being careful not to touch the bone)
  7. Brush the duck with glaze, turn oven up to 450°F (200°C), and roast again for about 10 minutes.
  8. Carve and serve!
