Our 20 minute recipe
Marinate the duck
Pre-heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7.
Mix the CHINESE MARINADE and the SZECHUAN FIVE SPICE in a bowl.
Pat each duck breast dry with a paper towel and make 5-6 diagonal slashes in the skin, going just through to the flesh. Season them and place them flesh side down in the bowl of marinade and rub the mixture into the flesh side.
Pan-fry the duck
Place the duck breasts skin side down in a cold, oven-proof frying pan, without oil. Then turn the heat on low and let them cook for 8 mins, or until the fat has melted out and the skin is golden brown. Pour off the fat regularly into a heat-proof container.
Next, turn the duck breasts over to cook the flesh side for 1-2 mins.
Finish it in the oven
Put the pan into the oven (or put the duck breasts onto a baking tray) for 6-8 mins for medium-rare or 10-12 mins for medium-well, keeping them skin side up this time.
Prep the salad
Meanwhile, mix the lettuce, cucumber, spring onions and avocado (if using) together and then serve onto plates and top with the pomegranate seeds.
When the duck is cooked to your liking, remove from the oven and leave to rest on a board for a few mins. Then slice the duck and arrange it on the salads and drizzle with HOI SIN SAUCE.

Not being a lover of aniseed I put only half of the 5 spice seasoning in which was perfect for me.

Paul - Jul 23, 2019
Except, a little hot for sone people maybe
Ceri - Jul 19, 2019
Lovely meal but I felt it needed more hoisin sauce, it wasn't enough to flavour the amount of lettuce in the bowl.
Lisa - Jul 19, 2019

Richard - Jul 17, 2019
Gillian - Jul 12, 2019
I liked this meal but I added noodles and stir fry vegetables to it. Just based on the box, the Chinese 5 spice mix was a little too aniseedy for me
Rob - Jul 10, 2019
Michelle - Jul 08, 2019
Nikki - Jul 04, 2019
Need a bit more hoisin sauce and I ended up putting brown rice with it to bulk it up a bit but otherwise really tasty
RITA - Jul 02, 2019
Really are authentic tasting meals!
Lee - Jul 02, 2019
