  • 1 whole duck
  • 6 medium potatoes (avoid if Paleo)
  • 3/4 cup ghee (melted)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme (minced)
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. In a bowl combine all the ingredients for the marinade and mix until well combined.
  3. Rinse the duck inside and out with cold running water and pat dry. Remove the giblets if necessary.
  4. Place the duck in a roasting pan, and generously rub the skin with the marinade.
  5. Use a knife to pierce the skin of the duck, all over.
  6. Roast the duck for 30 minutes, meanwhile cut the potatoes.
  7. Add in the potatoes while turning to coat them in duck fat, then continue to cook for 30 minutes.
  8. Reduce the heat to 300 F (150 C) and cook for another 1½ hours or until golden and skin is crisp. The internal temperature should reach 140 F – 170 F depending on your preference.
  9. Let the duck rest 10 to 12 minutes before carving.
  10. Enjoy!
