Crispy duck forks

Crispy duck forks

snacks and sides | makes 20, with ½ duck left over

Mismatched forks loaded with warm duck, cool mint and juicy clementine create mouthfuls of bliss at any drinks party. Half a duck goes a long way, so you’ll have lots of delicious leftovers for pasta or a cassoulet.

1. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5. Season the duck well inside and all over. Rub the ginger over the duck, and then the spices.
2. Place the duck in a roasting dish and cook in the oven for about 2 hours, basting halfway through. Allow to cool a little, then shred all the meat into a large bowl and set aside.
3. Peel the 4 clementines, removing as much pith as possible, then finely slice and add to a separate bowl along with the mint. Tap the seeds out from the pomegranate and add those.
4. Prepare your dressing by shaking all the ingredients in a clean jam jar. Immediately before serving, mix some warm duck with the fruit mixture and drizzle with a little dressing, then load up the forks – simply spike a fork into pieces of clementine, duck and mint, catching some pomegranate seeds along the way. You could use apple slices, frisée, watercress, rocket or nuts to vary the forks a little, if you like.
