Hoisin Duck Legs

This is a delicious, easy-to-make recipe to ensure duck legs do not get left behind during this fall’s bird hunting season.


  • 2 duck legs
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons red wine
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Sesame seeds, to taste
  • Rice, for serving
  • Tortilla, for serving


Preheat oven to 400° F.

Season the duck legs with salt and pepper to taste. Lay the legs skin-side-down in a sturdy pan. Sear the legs until they are crispy, about 7-8 minutes. Turn and sear opposite side, just a couple minutes.

Combine the hoisin sauce, honey, red wine, sriracha sauce, and soy sauce in a bowl. Brush the mixture over the duck skin. Bake the duck legs in the oven for 40 minutes, glazing every 10-15 minutes.

Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Serve with rice and a tortilla.
