Four Frozen Duck Leg Quarters in the Freezer... what to do?

ideabaker | Apr 25, 2010 03:12 AM

My local grocery had (for some odd reason) a one-off heap of fresh duck leg quarters for a not-to-be-ignored price. So I bought them and tossed them into the freezer about a month ago... they've been sitting there since because it's occurred to me that I'm pretty busy during the week, pretty tired on the weekend, and my flatmate doesn't like spice (which I adore).

So I am trying to think of a creative, yet spicy (not HOT spicy, but flavourful) way to cook these things before they fuse themselves to the side of the deep freezer. Anyone have any (fairly simple, yet tasty) ideas? Thawing them then drizzling them with some kind of a hand made spice paste then baking was my only idea, but surely there must be better ones out there...

Thanks to anyone who wants to pitch in on this one. Am beginning to wonder why I bought duck when I've never prepared it before!

Oh, p.s. it is winter here, so can't use the grill!
