  • oil
  • sesame seeds 2 tbsp
  • green pepper 1, cut into thin strips
  • spring onions 3, shredded
  • carrots 2, cut into thin strips (use a peeler)

  • Step 1

    Mix the hoisin sauce and chinese five spice in a bowl. Score the duck skin diagonally and marinate the breast in the sauce for 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Heat a little oil to hot in a non-stick pan. Shake the excess marinade from the duck then put in the pan skin-side down and cook for 5-7 minutes until the skin turns crisp. Turn the heat down to medium, turn the duck over and brush with the remaining marinade until cooked, about 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, lightly toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan. Mix the vegetables with the sesame seeds and sesame oil. Serve the duck breast with the salad.
