  • 1 duck
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick ) butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  5. Simmer the livers in salted water to cover in a saucepan until tender. Drain and reserve the duck pan juices, skimming and discarding the fat. Combine juices, orange zest, livers and their broth. Combine a small amount of broth and flour to make a paste. Stir paste into pan juice mixture. Cook until mixture is thickened, stirring constantly. Pour curacao into a gravy boat. Add gravy and serve with duck immediately.
