  5. BBQ the duck breast skin side down on the flat plate 2-3 minutes until skin is crispy.
  6. Turn duck breast and place on the grill on a medium heat for 5-6 minutes taking care not to burn the duck.

Chef’s Tips: To prevent burning allow marinade to drain off prior to barbecuing. Try adding ½ cup of mango or apricot puree to this marinade for a delicious difference.
