  • One Duck
  • 2 - 3 Large cloves of garlic
  • 1 Onion
  • Grand Marnier liqueur
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Lime
  • Several big cup mushrooms
  • 1 Courgette
  • 200ml Cream (single)


  1. Place duck in pot.

  2. Pour over the Grand Marnier.

  3. Add the chopped garlic and onion.

  4. Slice 2/3 of the lime and lemon and add to pot.

  5. Squeeze the rest of the lime and lemon into the pot.

  6. Leave to stand for at least 2 - 3 hours.

  7. Break up mushrooms into a blender and add the cream.

  8. Blend the mushrooms to a fine paste, add some water to thin to a liquid.

  9. Add the roughly chopped sections of the courgette to the blender.

  10. Pour the mix into the pot, making sure the duck is covered.

  11. Place in a pre-heated oven for 1 hour at 150°C (pot must be covered).

  12. Then cook for another hour at 200°C without cover, during which time you will need to stir every now and then.

  13. Serve either with deep fried sweet potato slices or egg noodles.
