Method

Serves 4

 

  1. Remove any excess fat from the meat and trim any excess skin off the top of the breast leaving just enough to cover the breast.
  2. With a knife carefully score the skin (this is much easier if the duck is chilled)
  3. Finely chop the garlic and put in a bowl, add the 5 spices, sugar and soy sauce and mix, add the duck breasts and cover with cling film, leave to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  4. Heat the grill to maximum and cook the duck for 7-8 minutes depending on the size

 

Top tip – take the duck out of the fridge at least 30 -40 minutes before cooking this allows the meat to cook better, this can be done with most red meats.
