Steps

1
Done

First, chop off some tarragon and Italian parsley and transfer it to a medium-sized bowl. Then, add some crushed garlic cloves and star anise. Add a little bit of crushed black pepper, ¼ cup of salt, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar and mix all the ingredients together.

2
Done

Now, add in the duck legs and rub it with the ingredients. Once done, cover it with a cling wrap or towel and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes.

3
Done

When the duck legs are ready, just rinse the duck legs under cold water to remove the excess salt. Then, pat dry the duck legs with a paper towel and then transfer them to a 2-3” baking container. Cover the duck legs with rendered duck fat, canola oil, or rendered chicken fat. Bake the duck legs at 300⁰ F for at least 2 hours until they are nice and tender.

4
Done

Once the duck legs are baked, allow them to cool in the fat at room temperature for at least 1 hour. When they have cooled down, transfer them to a plate. Remove the thigh bones so that it is easy to eat and then place them into your refrigerator for at least 1½ hours so that they become sturdy and ready to shallow fry.

5
Done

Once the duck legs are slightly chilled, take them out and fry them over medium-high heat. Cook it for at least 5 minutes on each side until the skin is crispy and golden brown. Once ready, place the duck legs onto a paper towel to soak the excess fat or oil.

6
Done

In the meantime, let’s prepare the watercress salad. In a mixing bowl, add in 1 cup of picked hydro watercress, ½ a cup of shaved fennel, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of sherry vinegar, 1 tablespoon of whole-grain mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
Now, serve the duck legs with the complimenting watercress salad.
