READY IN: 42mins




  • Score the duck breast skin in a criss-cross fashion.
  • Blend the honey, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon, five spice powder and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Coat the duck in this marinade in a shallow bowl.
  • Cover and leave for 1 hour or overnight.
  • Set the oven to fairly hot, 200c/400f.
  • Put the duck on a rack in a roasting tin, reserving the marinade.
  • Cook for 20-30 minutes depending on their size and how well you like your duck cooked.
  • Put the marinade and 40mls of the roasting juices in a small pan.
  • Add the spring onions and bring to the boil.
  • Simmer gently for 2 minutes.
  • I serve the duck on a bed of rice with the sauce and spring onions spooned over, and sometimes some cranberry sauce to finish.
