Figs might be nice with duck. Roasted figs. But I would need a mortgage to get them here. I don't know why they are so scarce and expensive.

A simple roasted red fingerlings to pair for a very suitable as “a red Valentine dinner” occasion - strawberries for desert!

To make it really red- a steamed fresh lobster?
That could work as a glaze or dip. A sweet and sour relish works great too. The Peking duck usually serves with hoison sauce and green onions which is sort of sweet and tangy.

Wow! Thanks for all the great ideas, folks! I haven't even read the whole thread yet, but this is a gold mine.

Edited to add: I just finished reading all of the posts. You all are great! Thanks heaps for the excellent ideas. I'm narrowing it down a bit, but it's a tough decision. I really appreciate your input.

That’s Chinese recipe. I have mine the French recipe, ala Chez Panisse. It’s first marinated in red wine sauce, and a bunch of vegs, like celery, carrots, onions. Then you roast it, the wine sauce is reduced and thicken to serve as a sauce.

But I like cherry sauce, so I make cherry sauce instead. If you like Orange, you can make orange sauce, note this is not the same as Duck a L’Orange. I like the duck skin to be crunchy. So I pan fry it first then I put it in the oven and bake. The fat melts. Much healthier.

I have 6 fig trees in my garden for a reason. They are so delicious.

Keep it simple! Leave time for you to get fluffed up, have a glass of something and enjoy the evening.

I like to serve duck over a bed of farro with sauteed greens. Simple, hearty, and will go with whatever seasonings you're using on the duck.

There seems to be a season when they are abundant. Otherwise, no.

Lingonberry sauce, wild rice and mushrooms, haricots verts cooked in a splash of olive oil and some water so they’re partly steamed, partly sautéed. Garnish with toasted slivered almonds.

Cook the wild rice in chicken stock for about 40 minutes. I usually use some fresh thyme. Quarter mushrooms and sautée in butter. A splash of dry sherry at the end.

If I can’t find lingdonberries, cranberry sauce made with orange juice and a splash of grand marnier at the end works.

I tend to grill boneless duck breast on the Weber rather than roast a whole duck.
