Roast Duck With Orange Sauce - Canard a L' Orange Julia Child
180 mins (prep 120, cooking 60)
25 ingredients
2 servings
It was near my husband's birthday when a dear friend gave me two ducklings. Michael loves duck, so I asked him how he wanted them fixed. This is my adaptation of Julia Child's recipe for Duck a l'Orange. The ducklings were a perfect one serving size, 15 ounces, and 17 ounces. The recipe that I had, said that a 5 pound duck would take 1 hour and 30 minutes. Since ours were just about a pound each, they only took 25 minutes. Thank you, Jenny!
