Chinese Food In Minutes

Cantonese-style duck with pak choy and rice

So versatile that you can even use the duck for spring rolls.

Serves 2
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook in: 25 minutes (plus 20 minutes marinating and resting)

This recipe is really versatile – you can use the cooked duck to make duck spring rolls, or turn it into a delicious supper served with the pak choy and rice.

INGREDIENTS
2 x 150g/5oz duck breasts, skin on
steamed pak choy leaves and steamed jasmine rice to serve

For the marinade:
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder
1 tablespoon groundnut oil
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 tablespoons Shaohsing rice wine or dry sherry

METHOD
• Put all the ingredients for the marinade into a bowl and mix well. Add the duck and turn to coat, then leave to marinate for 20 minutes.
• Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas mark 4. Place the duck on a roasting tray. Reserve the marinade. Roast the duck in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove and leave to rest for 12 minutes.
• Pour the reserved marinade into a small wok or pan and bring to the boil.
• To serve, slice the duck breast and place on a bed of steamed pak choy. Drizzle the hot sauce over the dish and serve with jasmine rice.

    If you are not used to Chinese five spice be careful.. I agree with Charmaine, it can spoil the meal if overdone.mine turned out fine with about two thirds of a tablespoon.

    Excellent recipe. Tried it last weekend and turned out absolutely brilliantly. Only point i would make is to put less Five Spice Powder, as I found the quantity used a little overpowering for my taste!

    Excellent recipe & easy to get right...... loved the result. I wasn't 100% sure about the cook time in that the "Cook in" time is shown as 25mins (i used this & it was fine with my cooker) but in the 2nd para under "Method", it says 20mins .... I'm a pendant I know but I have to cook by numbers or I'm lost.
