  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Put everything in a large bowl, and season with sea salt and black pepper. Mix together so that the duck is well coated. Wrap the coated duck pieces in foil, and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the barbecue or charcoal grill until hot. Unwrap the duck, and place it on the hot barbecue skin-side down. Grill over high heat, turning frequently, for 10-15 minutes, until golden and crisp. Transfer to a plate, and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Cut the duck into slices, and serve with a crisp green salad.
