Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add potatoes, half the thyme sprigs and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown, 25-28 min. (NOTE: You will add duck fat to the potatoes in step 4, about halfway through roasting.)
While potatoes roast, strip thyme leaves from remaining stems. Roughly chop parsley. Zest, then juice orange. Peel, then finely cut half the onion into 1/4-inch slices (whole onion for 4 ppl).
Add onions, vinegar, 1 tbsp water and 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a small pot. Season with salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring often, until salt dissolves, 1-2 min. Remove the pot from heat. Transfer onions, including pickling liquid, to a medium bowl. Place in the fridge to cool.
While onions pickle, pat duck dry with paper towels. Using a sharp knife, score skin-side of duck in a criss-cross pattern. Season with salt and pepper. Add duck to a cold, large non-stick pan, skin-side down. Cook over medium heat until skin is crispy, 10-12 min. Flip and cook until golden-brown, 2-3 min. Transfer duck to another parchment-lined baking sheet, skin-side up. Reserve duck fat in pan. Roast duck in the top of the oven until cooked through, 8-13 min.** Carefully drizzle 2 tbsp duck fat (dbl for 4 ppl) over potatoes, then toss to coat and continue to roast until golden-brown.
When duck is done, transfer to a plate to rest, 2-3 min. While duck rests, add thyme leaves, mustard, remaining maple syrup, 1 tsp orange zest and 1/4 cup orange juice (dbl both for 4 ppl) to the same pot (from step 3). Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until glaze thickens slightly, 3-4 min. Remove the pot from heat, then season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
Add 1 tbsp onion pickling liquid and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine. Drain onions and discard remaining pickling liquid. Add pickled onions, arugula and spinach mix and walnuts to the large bowl with dressing, then toss to combine. Thinly slice duck. Sprinkle potatoes with parsley. Divide duck, potatoes and salad between plates. Drizzle glaze over duck.
