- Cooking Time: Under 30 mins
- Cuisine: British
- Main Ingredient: Duck
- Preparation Time: Under 30 mins
- Serves: 4+
- You will need:
- • 2 large Gressingham Duck breasts, skin removed
- • 2-3 large heads pak choy, leaves removed from the stem and washed
- • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- • Salt and pepper
- • Small bunch of fresh coriander, washed and roughly chopped
- • 5 kafir lime leaves ( fresh or dry ) roughly chopped
- • 1 red chilli, roughly chopped
- • 1 clove garlic, peeled
- • 1 tablespoon light soy
- • Juice of 1 lime
- • Half a teaspoon caster sugar
1. Firstly, take all the marinade ingredients and place in a pestle and mortar or food blender and pound or mix. Place in a bowl big enough to fit the duck. Set aside. 2. Next place the duck breasts on a chopping board, remove any mini fillets and cut across the breast horizontally at the thickest part. You should have 4 flat fillets. (If serving as main courses use four breasts unsliced). 3. Place cling film over the top and hit them with a rolling pin or the back of a large chopping knife to flatten to approximately 14 inch. Place in the marinade bowl, mix well and leave to marinade for at least 30 minutes but preferably 2-3 hours in a fridge. 4. When you are ready to eat, take the breast from the marinade and scrape off any excess marinade back in the bowl. Leave the marinade in a warm place. 5. Place a wok or large frying pan on to medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. When the oil is hot throw in the pak choy, season with salt and pepper and stir fry for a couple of minutes, adding a little water if drying out. 6. When it is cooked, divide onto 4 plates in the middle. Next, cook the duck steaks. Take another large pan and put onto a high heat. 7. Add 2 tablespoons of veg oil and when it gets hot, carefully place the duck steaks into the pan, I find using tongs to do this is a good option. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and sear for about a minute and a half. Then flip the steaks over and do the same. Now add in the remaining marinade into the pan and bring to a simmer. Add a little water if it needs loosening. 8. Once it is simmering continue to cook for a minute, remove the duck steaks from the pan and place them on top of the pak choy. Pour over any remaining marinade over the steaks. Delicious.
