NIKU Farms doesn’t just have pasture-raised chicken, beef, and pork. Did you know if you shop from Marita Fields Farm, you also have the opportunity to purchase delicious grass-fed duck?
We know not everyone is well-versed in cooking duck on a regular basis, so we’re here to give you some tips on what to do with each of Marita Fields’ cuts of duck meat!
Glaze your duck breast with sweet and/or savoury flavours such as an orange and ginger sauce, or maple syrup and cook until you reach an internal temperature of 170F, or aim a little lower if you want to hit a succulent medium rare.
Not sure what to do with your duck legs? Try roasting them in the oven with rosemary and a red wine sauce at 375F. Cook until hitting an internal temperature of 165F, and you’ll have a delicious, well-done duck leg.
Duck wings are going to be fattier than chicken wings. You could try a buffalo sauce, but duck goes really well with complimentary flavours. Add a sweet element to your spicy sauce such as marmalade, and you’ll have a new favourite type of wing!
Finally, you can of course roast a duck whole! Roasted, grilled, or slow-cooked – served with roasted vegetables, a sweet and savoury glaze, or mashed potatoes and salad; a crispy whole duck is great for special occasions!
