Sumptuous duck, seasoned, cured and slow cooked so it's meltingly tender and moreishly tasty - no wonder this classic dish is so popular. A speciality of France, this generously sized duck leg is cooked in its own fat using a centuries-old artisan method and takes just a few minutes to heat through for a satisfying meal anytime. The lean dark meat has a rich, savoury flavour, and it's so tender it falls off the bone. Pan-fry for the crispiest skin - delicious!
  • Meltingly tender free-range duck
  • Raised in the Loué region of France

Cooking methods:

Pan Frying:
Heat a frying pan over a low heat and sauté the legs, skin side down, with a little of the fat, until the skin is crisp, golden and heated through.

Preheat oven to 200ºC/ Fan180ºC/Gas 6. Lift the duck legs out of the fat wipe off most of the excess with kitchen paper. Place skin-side up on a rack in a roasting tin and roast for 15-20 minutes, until the skin is crisp and golden and the meat has heated through.

Chef's Tip:
For extra crispy skin, flash the heated duck legs under a hot grill, skin side up, watching carefully at all times. Keep the remaining duck fat and use later, in small amounts, to make gorgeous sautéed food.

I found them a bit stringy, maybe I will try to defrost them for longer
good portion of meat and tasty
As confit duck legs come in pack of 8 and there are 3 in family, bought one extra one. Scrummy, great taste.
Bought this for my daughter in law as she loves them
The duck was beautiful and tender
Tasty but very fatty. Maybe I need to review how I am cooking these.
I like this - there is plenty of meat on the duck leg and so easy to cook but you do have to remove all that fat
Every time we eat this, it takes us back to a tiny french cafe
On the banks of the Canal du Midi. Heaven!!
Falls off the bone and melts in your mouth
Always buy these on all my orders. Have loved them from my first purchase.
Both my husband and I liked this product, it made a nice change from the usual. I also like the way Donald Russell advises on how to cook most products. Even though I would have cooked it the same way it is always nice to know for sure.
Buy these for my daughter in law who loves them.
Amazing... Variety, standards & Quality are high. Very Impressed.
Fantastic product as are all the meat products.
As Above
What can I say about these that I haven't said previously! Gorgeous,tender and falls off the bone. Full flavoured for duck.
I do find them rather salty but they are good in wraps with cucumber, spring onion and hoisin sauce.
I have not tried this yet but I had to give a star rating in order to proceed!
