Roast Duck with Fig Tarragon Glaze is perfect for a special dinner and simple to make. Try it for Christmas dinner, a romantic evening, or special birthday!
Sometimes I just want something different for dinner. Because of some problems at my favorite local grocery store, I’m now making longer shopping trips to the nearest Aldi. Aldi is worth the drive. I’m particular about meat, especially at “discount” stores.
Aldi’s quality of meat is very good! This past spring I bought a butterflied leg of lamb at Aldi for $15.00. Usually, a leg of lamb is around $40. I took the chance because I love lamb, and being my first trip to Aldi, this purchase was also a test. If Aldi can offer high-quality lamb at a price like that, they’ve got me for a customer. The lamb was spectacular!
So when I saw Pekin duck at Aldi, I snapped it up. Duck is rich, luscious, and flavorful. The meat is dark like the thigh meat of chicken. It’s a high-fat dish and a little goes a long way. Roast duck is perfect for special meals.

How to Make Roast Duck with Fig Tarragon Glaze
Duck pairs beautifully with fruit flavors. When most people think of a duck dish, they think of Duck a l’Orange. In fact, frozen duck comes with a packet of orange sauce.
I love fig jam and for this recipe, I created a quick fig tarragon glaze with simply fig jam melted and mixed with dried tarragon. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savory and wonderfully enhanced the flavor of the duck.
