If you’re on this page, it’s probably the holiday season and you’re looking for an impressive roasted bird recipe for your guests! I’ve got you covered with an incredibly easy and delicious recipe! An oven-roasted duck is a great alternative to the traditional turkey for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. This simple recipe stuffed with garlic, thyme and shallots yields a flavorful and juicy bird!
If you purchase your bird frozen, make sure to thaw it out in advance! Take it out of the freezer and place it into the refrigerator at least 3 to 4 days in advance to make sure you don’t have a frozen bird the day of! And if you don’t have a roasting pan, don’t worry! This recipe will also work well in a regular casserole pan. Serve the bird on a plate with festive garnishes like pomegranate arils, fresh herbs, orange slices, persimmon slices or even small apples.
Preparing an oven-roasted duck or turkey for the first time can be nerve-wrecking. Overcome the intimidation of preparing a whole bird by watching my video tutorial on this recipe!
