  • 5 LB Whole Duck
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Lemon Pepper


  • 2 Tbsp Gochujang
  • 1/4 Cup White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Honey


  1. Begin by scoring the skin of the duck in a cross hatched design.  Season the duck with the salt and lemon pepper.  Place on a broiling tray and add some water to the base.

    Place in a 350 degree oven.  Bake for 30 minutes breast side up.  Turn upside down and cook for another 20 minutes.

    While the duck is roasting, combine the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan.  Simmer for 15 minutes until well mixed.

    Now, take the duck out of the oven and put breast side up and baste with the sauce.  Put the duck back in the oven and baste every 10 minutes.  

    Let rest for 5 minutes.  

    Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If the skin is not as crispy as you would like turn your oven on to low broil and broil until desired doneness.
