DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES: Duck confit, also known as Confit de Canard, is unarguably one of the most famous French cuisines that has made its way across to our American palate. Our version of duck leg confit is pre-cooked and ready for you to warm and enjoy as you would in the finest of French restaurants. Our pre-cooked meal is perfect for impressing a date or serving a dinner party with minimal effort. Duck leg confit is a delicacy served only in the most dedicated French restaurants and known as a popular traditional dish.
Both the legs & thighs of Moulard Ducks are marinated overnight in a specially-curated, secret blend of fresh herbs and spices. This marinating process allows the duck meat to be soaked in and retain maximum flavor. The duck leg is then slow-cooked in pre-seasoned, rendered duck fat. This process infuses them with a juicy flavor that creates a most tender, "fall off the bone" dining experience. A simple, but exceptionally impressive and delicious meal.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT: We take the arduous task of preparing this delicacy from you and present only the finest rendition of this famous French dish. Preparing duck leg confit properly is more of a technique than a recipe. It is essentially a way of macerating the leg and thigh meat of duck with its own dense fat. Initially developed in Gascony, France, this method was developed centuries ago to naturally preserve the precious meat.
Traditionally, duck confit uses the entire duck and renders it in its own cured fat. However, many cuts of the duck such as the breast often become dried out when not optimally used. However, our duck leg confit consists of both the thigh and leg, which are the two juiciest cuts, allowing for a premium taste that is sure to satisfy even the harshest of cuisine critics.
STORAGE/PREPARATION: Our duck leg confit is pre-cooked and needs only to be thawed, warmed up, and plated. Keep frozen until ready to cook. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350º. Remove duck leg from the package and place on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes; broil 5-10 minutes further to achieve a perfectly crisp, golden skin. Plate with mashed, or potatoes au gratin and a freshly steamed or sauteéd vegetable of your choice.
