The simple answer is no. The skin will hold in all the moisture in the lean duck meat. It will also flavor the meat as it cooks…kind of like self-basting. If you absolutely have to get rid of the skin, take it off after the meat has rested. Make sure you give it to the guy next to you. Most people would kill for some extra crispy duck skin.
8. Should I remove the fat before cooking duck breasts?
