Process materials:

Ducks are cleaned of feathers, dissected, paying attention to only cut a round hole under the abdomen. However, this step is often not possible because ducks are usually purchased at the slaughterhouse. When buying, pay attention to how to choose duck so that it is delicious.
Dried molasses: Cook dried molasses seeds in water, boiling water for 2-3 minutes, then take them out. Be careful not to overcook. This will destroy the delicious taste and aroma of the honeysuckle fruit. Then, put the molasses into the blender or use a pestle to grind. You can make it once with a large quantity and then store it in an airtight container. It will be easier to use when taking it out. Divide the ground macadamia nuts into three equal parts, 2 parts mix well for seasoning and filling in the belly of roast duck, 1 part for dipping sauce.
Minced ginger, garlic, dried onion and fry in a pan of oil until golden and fragrant. Put the molasses + soy sauce + minced tofu (or chao) into the pan, stir quickly for about 2 minutes until the mixture boils. Season with spices such as sugar, salt, monosodium glutamate, seasoning powder to taste. Add 1/2 cup of filtered water. Let the mixture boil again, then add the fresh magnolia leaves and stir quickly for 2 minutes. To eliminate the fishy smell of duck and add flavor, you add 1/2 teaspoon of anise powder and cinnamon and mix well.


The first thing we do is tie knots at the bottom and top of the duck’s neck. It is best to use a sedge rope to tie. Because the sedge is a natural plant, in addition, the sedge does not catch fire during the rotation. Why tie a knot like that at the duck’s neck? The reason is because when inflated to separate the duck skin to the outside, the air is easy to escape.

Put all the seasoning sauce just prepared into the duck belly. Pay attention to the right amount, do not put too much. Use a stainless steel needle to sew the lower abdomen, so that during the rotation, the spices and water in the abdomen do not leak out. To be more secure, you should use a sedge to sew with a new needle to sew.
Dip the whole duck in boiling water and remove immediately. By doing so, the duck skin will be firmer, when the finished duck skin is more crispy and the crispy time is longer. In the process of roasting the duck, care should be taken not to let the coals be too big, the fat will burn a lot.

Should I use pre-mixed seasoning? The answer is no. You should not use pre-mixed seasonings that are widely sold in the market. I highly recommend not using that pre-mixed seasoning. With such a pre-mixed, mass-marketed spice and no guarantee of such quality. Surely your roast duck never gets any special flavor. But if you still want to use the pre-made seasoning pack to save effort. You should buy at reputable places, specializing in providing cooking spices.
