Remove Peking duck from packaging and defrost uncovered (breast side up ) in a refrigerator for up to 24 hours until skin is dry.

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Lightly season the Peking duck skin with salt, place on cooking rack in a roasting pan, and loosely tent duck with foil.

Roast the Peking duck for 30 minutes then lower oven temperature to 350 and roast for 1.5 to 2 hours (still tented with foil) until the internal temperature reaches 200-205°F.  

Pro tip – remove foil and broil duck on high for 2-3 minutes to make skin extra crispy.

Remove Peking duck from oven and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving.

Carve the Peking duck.

Remove/carve the crispy skin from the back and legs of the duck and slice into strips

Assemble all meat and skin on platter.
