Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 15 minutes
    •    Cook time: 15 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    4 x 180g duck breast fillets (see note), skin scored
    •    2 tbsps hoisin sauce
    •    270g packet soba noodles
    •    1/3 cup (80ml) soy sauce
    •    1 tbsp sesame oil
    •    1 tbsp brown sugar
    •    Juice of 1 lime
    •    1 mango, sliced
    •    2 cups watercress sprigs


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Season the duck, then place, skin-side down, in a non-stick ovenproof frypan over low heat. Cook for 5-6 minutes until most of the fat has rendered and the skin is crisp. Turn, then brush skin with hoisin sauce. Transfer to the oven and bake for 6 minutes or until just cooked but still pink in the centre. Rest, loosely covered with foil, for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook noodles according to packet instructions, then drain. Whisk soy, oil, sugar and lime juice together to make a dressing, then toss half with the noodles.
  4. Thinly slice the duck and serve with the mango, watercress and noodles. Drizzle with the remaining dressing.
