Serve this as a main meal with rice and stir-fried greens, or thread the duck onto little skewers and serve with drinks – perfect with a lychee Martini.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon clear honey
3cm piece ginger, peeled and grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon five-spice powder
1/4 teaspoon hot chilli powder
2 skinless duck breasts, cut into 2cm cubes

For the cucumber noodles

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 cucumber
1 carrot
2 spring onions, shredded
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
3cm piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Method

  1. Mix the soy sauce along with the honey, ginger, garlic, and spices in a medium bowl. Add the duck, gently coat in the marinade, then cover and leave to stand for 15 minutes.
  2. To make the cucumber noodles, halve the cucumber lengthways and scoop out the seeds using a teaspoon and discard. Cut the cucumber into long, thin strips using a julienne peeler – if you don’t have one a potato peeler will do the trick. Do the same with the carrot. Put the cucumber and carrot strips into a bowl with the spring onions. Mix the soy sauce, ginger, and oil, then pour over the vegetables. Scatter over most of the sesame seeds and set aside.
  3. Preheat the grill to high. Lift the duck out of the marinade and thread onto 4 small skewers. Cook for 6 minutes, brushing with extra marinade halfway through cooking and just before turning. The duck should be dark golden, sticky, cooked on the outside, and a little pink in the centre. Leave to rest for a few minutes.
  4. Serve the skewers with the cucumber noodles sprinkled with the remaining sesame seeds and any resting juices.
