Cook duck
  • 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.
  • Transfer duck to a parchment-lined baking sheet, skin-side up. Roast in the bottom of the oven until cooked through, 8-12 min.**
  • Discard all but 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) duck fat from the pan.
  • When duck is done, transfer to a plate to rest, 3-5 min.
Roast potatoes
  • Meanwhile, cut potatoes into 1/4-inch rounds.
  • Strip rosemary leaves from stem, then finely chop.
  • Add potatoes, rosemary and 1 tbsp oil to another parchment-lined baking sheet. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, use 2 baking sheets, with 1 tbsp oil per sheet.)
  • Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
  • Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown, 22-25 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, roast in the middle and top of the oven, rotating sheets halfway through.)
  • Meanwhile, peel, then cut shallot into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Zest orange.
  • Cut a piece off the top and bottom ends of orange. Place a flat end on a cutting board, then cut the peel away from top to bottom to expose flesh, turning orange as you go.
  • Place orange on its side and cut into 1/4-inch rounds.
  • Squeeze juice from orange peels and collect any juices on the cutting board in a small bowl to get 3 tbsp (6 tbsp) orange juice. (NOTE: If you don't have enough juice, squeeze an orange slice.)

Make vinaigrette and toast almonds
  • Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add almonds to the dry pan.
  • Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!)
  • Transfer toasted almonds to a plate.
  • While the pan heats, add vinegar, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) orange zest, 1 tsp (2 tsp) apricot spread and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil to a large bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine.

Cook orange-apricot sauce
  • When duck is almost done roasting, heat the pan with reserved duck fat (from step 1) over medium. 
  • When hot, add shallots. Cook, stirring often, until softened slightly, 1-2 min.
  • Sprinkle flour over shallots. Cook, stirring often, until coated, 30 sec.
  • Gradually whisk in 1/2 cup (1 cup) water, broth concentrate, orange juice and remaining apricot spread. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer.
  • Once simmering, cook, whisking often, until sauce thickens slightly, 1-2 min.
  • Add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter and season with salt, then stir to combine.
  • Remove the pan from heat.
Finish and serve
  • Add arugula and spinach mix and orange slices to the bowl with vinaigrette. Toss to coat.
  • Thinly slice duck.
  • Divide duck, potatoes and salad between plates.
  • Spoon orange-apricot sauce over duck.
  • Sprinkle almonds over salad.
