  • Before cooking the dish, in a small dish, mix together the flour, black pepper, salt, and paprika. Take the duck legs and rub the seasonings so that the meat is covered thoroughly.

  • Oil the surface of a big skillet with vegetable oil. Increase the heat to a medium-high level and let the vegetable oil warm. Once the duck legs are in the pan, cook for 8 to 10 minutes on each side, until the skin is crispy.

  • In the pan with the fried duck legs, add the frozen cranberries together with the sugar, water, and, if desired, cinnamon. Mix everything and cook on high-medium heat for around 15 minutes until the cranberries reach a soft texture and the sauce has a thick consistency.

  • When everything is done, serve the dish. Place the duck legs on a beautiful serving dish and sprinkle the cranberry sauce on top. Enjoy the delectable taste of this dish.


  • To balance the dish's richness, serve the duck legs with roasted vegetables or green salad.

Bon Appetit!
