INDONESIAN BBQ DUCK

Wayne Good from Arkanda says this dish is a great way to serve something different on the BBQ. And the best thing is all the work can be done ahead of time!

6 duck legs
1 tbsp crushed coriander seeds
4 cloves garlic
4 diced shallots
2 tbsp chopped galangal
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp palm sugar
1 cup water
4 tbsp sweet soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
½ tsp white pepper

Place the duck in a roasting pan with the coriander seeds, garlic, shallots, galangal, bay leaves, palm sugar and water. Cover with foil and place into a pre-heated oven of about 140°C and bake very slowly for about 3 hours.

Remove from the oven, and place to one side (this can be done well in advance).

Heat a BBQ. Mix the soy sauce, honey and pepper together. Brush the duck with the glaze and BBQ until glazed and sticky.
