Five spice duck salad

five spice duck salad

Serves 2

  • 1 large duck breast

  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder

  • 1 pomegranate, halved

  • 3 spring onions, trimmed and sliced

  • 1 sprig fresh coriander, leaves picked

  • a few sprigs watercress

  • ½ ripe mango, peeled and cut into chunks

  • juice of ½ lime

  • sesame oil, to drizzle

  • 1 little gem lettuce

Season the duck breast and dust with Chinese five spice powder. Put in a medium-hot frying pan and fry very gently for 5 minutes, turning halfway, until lots of fat has come out of the skin and the skin is golden brown. Take out of the pan and slice thinly – the duck will still be raw in the middle but don't worry! Discard the fat from the pan and put the sliced duck back in. Stir fry for a few minutes, until cooked through and crispy. Set aside.



Mix the pomegranate seeds, spring onions, coriander, watercress, mango and crispy duck together. Dress with the lime juice and a drizzle of sesame oil. Season to taste.



Separate the lettuce leaves and arrange on plates. Top with the dressed salad to serve.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
