I found this recipe in an old copy of Consuming Passions I bought in a thrift shop. I don’t plan to keep the book, so am storing this recipe here so I can make it soon.

Very good! I made Duck for me & chicken for my dh. I reduced the amount & converted it - 4 tablespoons each of the soy sauce & hoisin sauce. 2 tablespoons each of oyster sauce, honey & rice wine vinegar. I also boiled the leftover marinade to make a sauce. We enjoyed this very much. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl, trim the duck breasts and add to the bowl. Marinate over night.
  2. Sear the duck breasts in a hot non-stick pan over high heat (taking care not to burn the marinade).
  3. Place the duck breasts in a baking dish and roast in a pre-heated oven at 205c or until medium rare (about 8 minutes).
  4. Allow the duck to stand 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
