Rub skin with lemon. Spoon Tangerine Stuffing into cavity of duckling; close cavity with skewers and truss. Prick skin with a fork at 2 inch intervals.
Place duckling, breast side up, on rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into thigh, making sure it does not touch bone. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees F for 1/12 hour. Sprinkle duckling with lemon pepper seasoning; bake an additional 30 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 185 degrees F. Transfer duckling to a serving platter, and garnish with grapes, oranges, lemons, and limes, if desired.
