I'm about to try the "What's Up Duck" recipe from Alton Brown's Good Eats -- which calls for brining the duck quarters in orange juice, 1/2 cup of kosher salt and additional herbs and garlic.
I'm worried because the label carries this 12% salt solution note, so my question is: Do I still add the half cup of salt to the brine? If I only add a quarter cup, will this affect the cooking?
The method is to steam the quarters, then sear in a very hot (475 degrees) pan.
Any info is much appreciated!
