  • Make your marinade by whisking all of the ingredients in a bowl. Place the duck breasts into the bowl, cover, and leave in the fridge for 30 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Heat a wok until smoking, and add a splash of oil then the duck breasts, skin-side down. Fry for 5 minutes until the skin is browned and crispy, then transfer the meat to a baking tray and roast in the oven for 4 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
