Orange Duck
Submitted by: CajunSue
1 duck
8 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup dry white wine
3 oranges
salt to taste
Take away the fat you can see from your duck and wash. Season with salt the inside of the duck. Put in a saucepan with olive oil and brown all over. Then add wine and some water; cook, covered, slowly for about 45-60 minutes, according to the duck size. Season with salt. Meanwhile peel an orange and, with a little sharp knife, eliminate all trace of the white pith. Cut into little strips and boil for some minutes. Drain very well. Squeeze the other 2 oranges and add their juice to the duck with the boiled little strips. Let it simmer until well reduced. Serve hot. Makes 2 servings.
