Czech Style Roast Duck
Czech Style Roast Duck


1 (5lb.) Duck
1 Tbsp salt
(Optional) pepper to taste
(Optional) 1 tsp caraway seeds


1. Wash dressed duck and dry thoroughly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

2. Place in roaster and sprinkle caraway inside and over duck.

3. Roast duck uncovered on a rack in roaster to drain away excess fat. Bake at 400 degrees for 1/2 hour, or until duck has been browned. Reduce oven to 350 degrees and roast 30 mins to the pound - about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Baste occasionally, if needed. Low broil at the end for crunchy skin.

4. Cut into serving pieces. Traditionally served with potato dumplings and sweet-sour cabbage.
