Honey Spiced Duck

Honey Spiced Duck created by Brian Holley

We love duck as a treat when it's just the 2 of us and it goes really well with this Chinese style marinade. Prep time doesn't include marinading.

ingredients

directions

  • 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.

    Very good marinade! Had to make some 5 spice as didn't have any! Will definately make this again as it really tenderises the duck beautifully! Thanks so much!

    I used a whole duck and went with US measurements. Even though I didn't make the sauce because my husband was tidying the kitchen and tidied away down the garbage disposal the reserved marinade - it was still a hit.

    Had to modify this recipe a bit, since I didn't have ginger and five spice, but it was REALLY good. Very tasty.

    I cooked this for just one person (me). it was easy to prepare and cook,I used the BBQ. I have kept the juices for the next time I make this for the family when I will try it with chicken. I served it with potatoes and runner beans as that was what I had. Overall a good dish, with good flavour.
