Super easy duck confit, a pretty hands-off dish, cooked for a few hours in its own fat until the skin is crunchy, the meat fragrant + tender and any remaining deliciously fatty bits are juicy, salty and crispy all at the same time. A perfect main dish for Friendsgiving, a special occasion or just a lovely regular Sunday dinner.
Served here with duck-fat fried taro and Yukon golds, a salad of baby tatsoi + mustard greens tossed in a crushed garlic-red wine vinegar-Dijon-olive oil vinaigrette, and a generous dollop of Amora Dijon mustard–tangy, mildly sinus-clearing, and a perfect accompaniment to balance out the duck’s rich flavor.
