Is duck a keto?

This recipe for Keto roast duck is ultimately our best bid for duck for dinner and it is exactly this recipe that we use at least once a year and it is year after year.

It is a long-fried LCHF duck roast, where the flavors of orange, vanilla and thyme compliment each other perfectly.

It’s something our family looks forward to several days and weeks in advance.

How to do:

Citrus Duck Roast with Crispy Skin
It’s the healthiest animal fat you can eat. Most of the fat renders out of the duck when you cook it this way, and you can use the remaining rendered fat to cook meats and vegetables.

Peel the oranges and cut them into cubes. Put them in a bowl and flip together with the thyme, as well as a bit of freshly ground black pepper. Fill the duck with thyme and orange from the bowl and close with a meat needle.

Turn on 125 degree ordinary oven (not hot air) the duck should have approx. 4 hours.

Pour the duck regularly with the liquid from the roasting pan.

Is roast duck Keto friendly?
Duck breasts are PERFECT for keto because they not only taste delicious, but have a layer of precious fat that is key to a full-flavored meal.

Tips: Cooking on the grill – The duck wings and thighs are wrapped in grill foil so they do not get burned. And should have a little less time, but watch the duck when pouring liquid from the roasting pan on and you can also use a frying thermometer.

If the duck is not crispy or golden brown enough after the 4 hours. Pour the liquid from the roasting pan into a saucepan and put the duck in the oven at 250 degrees for 10 minutes (Important to keep an eye on the duck at all times so that it does not burn)

Pour the fat from the saucepan into the sink and heat the saucepan with the rest until it almost boils. Then wait until there are approx. 5 dl left. (Remember to stir it)

Info: The fat is the transparent layer at the top of the saucepan.

Smooth the sauce with cornstarch stirred into cold water, and season with heavy cream, salt and pepper.

Can be served with boiled broccoli
