How to make duck with orange

First of all, grate the orange peel and add it to the squeezed orange juice.
Make incisions on the skin of the duck.

Heat a non-stick pan, then toast the meat over medium heat first on the skin side and then on the other side, about 5 minutes per side, so that it becomes crisp.
Brush with honey, then blend with Cointreau, finally turn again, add salt (and, if you want, pepper) and add the orange.

Let the sauce reduce over high heat, then cover and let it rest for a couple of minutes.

The duck with orange is ready: serve it with the cooking juices and decorate with a few slices of fresh orange.
