Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Rub the duck leg all over with five-spice and seasoning, place on a baking tray and roast for 25 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rice noodles following pack instructions. Drain and cool under cold running water, then drain again well and toss with the celery, carrot, cucumber and spring onions. When cool enough to handle, remove the duck meat and crispy skin from the bone and finely shred.
  3. To make the dressing, mix the hoisin and soy sauce with 2 tbsp water. Divide the noodles between two plates and top with the shredded duck. Drizzle over the dressing and serve.

We made double the quantity of everything as we are very hungry people and, although to begin with we both were pleasantly surprised, after a while it became a bit same-y. I think the duck and the texture of the noodles were nice but there were too much cucumber and dressing.

A little disappointing. I was planning on making this into a warm dish with egg noodles and pak choi, but the duck took waay longer than stated to cook (closer to 1hr) so the vegetables wilted and were cold by the time it was done. Sure there are better ways to cook duck legs.

This recipe had become a family favourite, it is so quick and easy to make and get on the table after a day at work. It also has the added bonus of being healthy.

I thought that the cold noodles were a bit strange - would be work better with warm noodles.

This is lovely - works well with pork too if you can't find duck. Also used egg noodles the second time with no problems. My husband doesn't like chinese food and he loves this!
