Tap For Ingredients


  1. This exotic duck salad has got it all going on – crunch, spice, juicy fruit and tasty crispy duck.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Separate the lettuce leaves and arrange on plates. Top with the dressed salad to serve.
