  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 210˚C/Gas 7. Calculate cooking time – 20 mins per 500g plus an extra 20 mins.

  2. 2

    Pat duck dry with kitchen towel and leave at room temperature for 30 mins. Prick skin all over without piercing the flesh, then rub all over with the salt, season with pepper, and place on a rack over a roasting tin.

  3. 3

    Cook for 20 mins then reduce heat to 180˚C/Gas 4. Cook for remaining calculated time until juices run clear.

  4. 4

    Pour juices from the cavity into the tin and remove the bird. Cover and leave in a warm place.

  5. 5

    Skim off any excess fat from the tin. Deglaze the tin with the port over a gentle heat, then stir in the stock and marmalade, followed by the cornflour mix. Cook until the sauce is nicely thickened, then add the orange segments.

  6. 6

    Season to taste and serve with the duck.
