1 whole duck
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3 sprigs rosemary
3 sprigs thyme
3 sprigs parsley
2 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste
1 large onion, finely chopped
glug of olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups Arborio (or basmati) rice, rinsed
about 8 cups duck broth
300 g chouriço, sliced
black pitted olives
This dish brings back so many memories for me. Every Christmas my mother would make this for the whole family and it was always popular with everyone around the table. Besides this dish being seriously yummy, my favourite part has to be the sliced chouriço on top of the duck rice that gets all crispy from being in the oven.
