The best seasoning for duck can make or break an excellent dish. A crispy, moist, well prepared roasted duck can be a delicious experience for the taste buds if done properly. There are several ways to prepare duck and there are several methods for marinades, rubs and cooking procedures.

The best seasoning for duck or the best marinade ingredients include:
