A whole duck is roasted with a herb and sherry rub, creating a delicious roast duck. It's perfect for celebrations or Sunday lunch, served with roasted potatoes and vegetables.
If you choose to stuff the bird with dressing, do this after spreading marinade inside the duck.
We absolutely loved this recipe once we realised that the cooking time is wrong. It should read roast for 30 minutes per pound (NOT PER HALF POUND) - 21 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this recently so we could decide if we wanted to have it for Thanksgiving. It came out GREAT. (Cooked it 30 minutes per lb. not 30 minutes per 1/2 lb.) We have decided to have it for Thanksgiving. So moist and flavorful. - 07 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
