Before microwaving, the duck should also be fried with butter for 5-10 minutes.
Put the duck in a microwave-safe dish, pour in the broth, and cover the dish with the lid after having salted and peppered it.
Microwave for 25-30 minutes keeping in mind that the dish should stand in the microwave oven for about 20 minutes more to get to readiness.
As soon as the duck is ready, take it out of the microwave oven, dress with onions and serve with the sauce produced during the preparation of the duck.
