When it appears 1/3 cooked place it skin side up in the over for 5 mins - take out, wrap in foil, and rest for 5-8 mins before carving.
I'd put the duck into a cold pan personally (skin side down), you will render the fat down much more than shocking it with the heat & not reaching all the fat.

If you want English take away style aromatic duck:-

Clean the duck:
Boil a large pot water, with spices salt sugar etc etc

Pour boiling water all over the skin of the duck

Cut it in half head to arse. (Chop off the arse bit as well)

Into the pot, add dark soy
Reduce when boiling,
Cook until soft it will look brown or dark probly 90 mins maybe 2 hours
Take them out let them rest,
Once cool cut in half again. So you got 4 pieces

Ie. 1/4 duck..

Put fridge or freeze what u don't want to eat
Would last 2 weeks in fridge

When u want to eat it

Drop it in deep fryer until Chrispy or oven but best best in fryer


Yum yum...

Exactly, I start my duck breasts in a cold cast iron pan, heat up then transfer to oven. Like the Gordon Ramsay recipe.

Easy to cook a crispy duck.
I roast the often in the weber bbq.
In a bowl a cup of caster sugar, half a dozen slices of ginger, small bunch spring onions, 6 star anise.
Stuff the duck and stitch it closed with a couple of satay sticks. Mix a couple of cups of boiling water with red wine vinegar and pour over the duck. It removes the grease and opens the pores.
Then mix a couple of cups of boiling water with half a cup of sucrose or rice syrup. Pour and rub all over the duck. Put it in the fridge for a few hours or a day.
Place on a rack in a dish with some water in the bottom. Cover with foil. Cook at 180-200 for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and cook at 180-200 for another 45 minutes.
The duck will be brown with crispy skin and really moist flesh. Australian ducks are fat, Thai ducks like Thai chickens are probably fat.
Only takes a few minutes to prepare and its difficult to fuck it up. Eat with cucumber and plum sauce.
Always delicious.

As a matter of interest, whats the price of a duck in Oz compared to a chicken? In NZ you would be lucky to find one at 3 times that of the same sized chook. A Czech friend of mine often complains about this. Which has me wondering whether it costs more to produce a chicken here because of different requirements or just a scale thing. If i remember rightly they may have cost a bit morein KOW, but not 3 times as much.
