This Piri Piri duck can be cooked straight away if there is not enough time to marinate overnight.
Marinating will give duck a greater depth of flavour. This marinade is also perfect for marinating fresh Luv-a-Duck, duck legs or breasts.
To BBQ: Pre-heat BBQ on medium heat. Place duck on the grill and turn off the burners directly underneath the duck , leaving the outside burners on. Close the lid and BBQ basting frequently and turning every 10 minutes for approximately 60 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending upon size of the duck to check doness skewer the leg and see if juices run clear. Allow duck to rest in a warm place 10 -15 minutes prior to carving.
This recipe is also delicious prepared using duck legs especially if you are cooking for a crowd.
