Outstanding? No. A good, solid recipe? Yes. The duck had a nice flavor from the 5-spice seasoning, and some folks liked the addition of the orange sauce from the packet accompanying the duck. Our two boys (10 and 6), who love duck, did not love the 5-spice seasoning. We had the duck for a Hanukkah dinner, with sweet potato latkes seasoned with ginger and scallions. I would make it again, although I would probably look for another recipe for my kids' taste.
