Roast duck on a bed of cucumber and spring onion served with spiced plum sauce


For the plum sauce

Preparation method

  1. Salt and roast the duck, in a preheated oven 180C/350F/Gas 4 for about 1 hour until the meat is tender, basting occasionally. Once the duck is cooked allow it to rest and divide into portions or shred the flesh.

  2. While the duck is cooking, prepare the sauce. Simply tip all the ingredients into a pan, cover and simmer for about an hour. Sieve and allow to cool slightly. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more sugar if necessary.

  3. Assemble the salad ingredients in a bowl.

  4. To serve, gently warm the plum sauce, pile some of the salad into the centre of a serving plate, place a portion of duck on top and serve the warm plum sauce on the side.
