FOR THE GLAZE:
9
This glaze is salty-sweet and gives the duck more flavour. It helps the skin brown faster as well. If you notice the skin starting to burn cover it with a foil tent.
10
Combine the tamari, stevia and 5 Spice Powder in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly. Rub the glaze all over the duck and finish with a light salting.
11
Apply the glaze all over the duck. It is best to removed the duck from the roasting pan, then glaze it, then put the duck in. Might be good to let the glaze drip off the duck (out of the roasting pan)a bit before putting it back into the oven. The glaze will smoke and could burn.

Enjoy!
