Jenny Paulin is a popular blogger at Mummy Mishaps. Jenny, has two young children but used to own a little cafe in a small market town in North Devon. We invited Jenny to be this months guest blogger. Her recipe uses a crispy aromatic duck in an inventive way, its perfect for impromptu entertaining, especially mid-week! (Serves 2)

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Cook the aromatic duck as per the instructions on the carton
  2. Cook the noodles as per the instructions on the packet, drain and put to one side
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok and stir fry the spring onions, carrots (keep 1/2 back for later) and peppers and the garlic until 'just' cooked - you want them to have some bite still
  4. Add the cooked noodles and the jar of hoisin sauce and stir to mix everything together
  5. Using a silicone muffin tin if you have one (or a regular one greased well), divide the noodle mixture between the 6 holes and ensure the veg is added too, mixed in with the noodles and on the top
  6. Cook in the oven with the duck - the nests take about 15 minutes so place them in the oven when the duck is 10 minutes away from being cooked.
  7. Make your salad, by placing the lettuce leaves, the cucumber and the carrot sticks into a bowl. Slice some orange slices in half and add to the salad
  8. Remove the duck when it is cooked, and shred - discard the skin if you are being healthy or keep it if not to serve alongside your nests.
  9. Pour the remaining hoisin sauce into a small bowl
  10. Remove the noodle nests from the oven and carefully remove from the muffin tin
  11. Serve your duck with a nest or two and some salad with some hoisin sauce on the side.
