Aromatic Duck Recipes

Ingredients :

2 half or 4 quarter

1 tablespoon



3-4 tablespoons


portions duck

five spice powder

small pieces fresh root ginger

spring onions, cut into short sections

Chinese rice wine or dry sherry

sheets dried rice paper, halved if large

fresh mint, basil and coriander leaves

Spicy Fish Sauce, to serve

salt and freshly ground pepper

Method :

Rub salt, pepper and five spice powder all over duck portions. In a shallow dish, mix ginger, spring onions and rice wine or sherry, add duck portions and leave to marinade for at least 3-4 hours, turning duck pieces now and then. Steam duck portions with marinade in a hot steamer for 2-3 hours. Remove duck portions from liquid and leave to cool. Duck can be cooked up to this stage in advance, if wished.

Preheat oven to 230oC (450oF), Gas 8 and bake duck pieces, skin-side up, for 10-15 minutes, then pull meat off the bone. Meanwhile, soften dried rice paper in warm water. Place about 2 tablespoons of meat in each half sheet of rice paper, add a few mint, basil and coriander leaves, roll into a meat bundle, then dip roll in Spicy Fish Sauce before eating it.

Serves 4-6
