Recipe by MarieRynr
READY IN: 30mins




  • Prick the duck's skin really well with a fork.
  • Mix the soy, 5 spice and honey in a large bowl, add the duck and coat well.
  • Cover and place in the fridge until ready to roast.
  • For the gravy, tip the stock into a pan, add the hoisin sauce and ginger and boil for a few minutes to make a smooth gravy.
  • Add the sesame oil and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 200*C (425*F).
  • Pour 1 litre of water in the base of a roasting tin and place a rack over the top.
  • (This keeps the fat from the duck dripping on to the tin and filling the kitchen full of smoke) Lift duck from marinade and arrange on rack, skin side up.
  • Roast for 20 minutes for medium, 30 minutes for well done.
  • Slice each duck breast in half.
  • Add any meat juices from the duck to the hoisin gravy and pour a spoonful or two over the duck.
