Fresh Duck Legs


  1. Preheat your oven to 140°C.
  2. Season the duck legs with salt and pepper. Add to a hot saucepan, fat side down. Cook for a few minutes on each side to seal, the fat will begin to render out and the duck will go golden brown.
  3. Add the red onions to a hot frypan and sweat down. Add the crushed garlic, chilli and extra virgin olive oil to the onions, season with salt and pepper. Add the mushrooms and butter and sweat down for a few minutes before adding the fresh herbs. Let simmer down for 5 minutes.
  4. Add passata to the seared duck, and the red wine and stock to the mushrooms, stir to lift any caramelised bits. Pour the mushroom mixture into the saucepan with the duck. Stir everything through and place in the hot oven uncovered for 1 and 30 minutes, or until the duck is tender.
  5. Serve with freshly chopped chives and parsley.
