Ingredients

  • 2 duck breasts, skin on
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • fresh chicken stock, cube or concentrate made up to 1 litre
  • 2 lime, juiced
  • 2 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 4 baby pak choy
  • 100g udon noodles
  • 2 red chilli, sliced
  • a small bunch coriander, roughly chopped
  • 2 spring onions, sliced

Method

  • STEP 1

    Score the fat of the duck breasts and marinate with 1 tbsp each of the fish sauce and sugar. Leave for 30 minutes or overnight. Heat a non-stick pan and pan-fry the duck, fat-side down. Reduce the heat to low and let the fat melt out, about 8 minutes. Turn over and sear for 3 minutes. Remove.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the chicken stock and add the lime juice, tamarind, remaining fish sauce and sugar. Add the pak choy and blanch for 1 minute. Boil the noodles in salted water until al dente. Drain and divide into 4 large bowls. Pour the stock over and add the pak choy.

  • STEP 3

    Thinly slice the duck and arrange on top. Sprinkle with chilli, spring onion and coriander.
