Defrosting a duck ah!
Ok so i've had my duck in the fridge for a little over 24 hours which was supposed to defrost it (it's 5.37 lbs) and i just took it out of the packaging and there are ice crystals on the inside, so its still kinda frozen right!?! but youre supposed to defrost it in the packaging in a bowl of water or in the fridge. I'm also pretty sure that you are NOT supposed to defrost duck at room temperature.. so what should I do? its sitting on my cutting board waiting to be defrosted and deboned but i dont know eek. please help.

If it's only just frozen, you might be able to bone it out now. But that's only if it's almost all the way defrosted - otherwise the flesh will tear and it'll be messy/difficult.
