Preparation steps

Step 1/3

Dust the duck legs with the cornstarch and tap off the excess. Heat about 3 cm (approximately 1 inch) of vegetable oil in a large pan and fry the duck legs for about 1 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Transfer the duck legs to a roasting pan and drizzle with sesame oil. Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). 

Step 2/3

Whisk the plum sauce with 250 ml of water until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and pour over the duck legs. Cover the roasting pan with a lid and bake for 1 hour. Drizzle with the soy sauce about halfway through the cooking time. 

Step 3/3

Remove from the oven, season with salt, pepper and soy sauce to taste and serve immediately.
