This recipe has a delicious glaze and looks and tastes stunning. (Serves 2)

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
  2. Dry the duck skin with absorbent paper, pierce the skin and then season both sides of the duck with a little salt. Place the duck on a baking tray and place in the oven for between 1 hr 15 minutes and 1 hr 30 minutes, until tender. You can check the tenderness with a skewer or the tip of a sharp knife.
  3. While the duck is cooking prepare the glaze. Put the tamarind, honey, soy and half the sesame oil in a bowl and mix well. Baste the duck leg with the glaze approximately 30 minutes before the end of its cooking time. Repeat this a few times over the last half an hour.
  4. Cook the rice noodles as per instructions, drain and set aside.
  5. Peel the cucumber length ways with a peeler and place in a bowl, add a dash of the sesame oil and a little salt. Mix well.
  6. When you are ready to serve, quickly fry off the rice noodles with the spring onion, a little salt and pepper and any remaining sesame oil. Place the duck, cucumber, noodles, chilli and any remaining glaze onto a platter and enjoy this lovely dish to share.
