Ingredients

  • ½ cucumber, cut into thin matchsticks
  • small bunch spring onions, shredded

For the duck

For the plum sauce

For the pancakes

Method

  • STEP 1

    The duck
    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Mix the honey and five-spice in a bowl, then brush all over the duck. Transfer to a roasting tin and roast for 25-30 mins until bronzed. Cool for 10 mins, then shred the meat and finely slice the skin.

  • STEP 2

    Plum sauce
    While the duck is cooking, put all the plum sauce ingredients in a saucepan and simmer gently over a medium heat for 15 mins or until the plums are soft and the sauce is thick. Using a stick blender, blend until smooth.

  • STEP 3

    Pancakes
    While the sauce is cooking, put the flour, 125ml boiling water and a pinch of salt in a bowl and mix together until it forms a dough. When cool enough to handle, knead for 5-10 mins. Divide it into 10 little balls and roll each one out as thin as you can. Brush a frying pan with the oil and cook each pancake over a medium heat for 20 secs each side or until cooked but not browned.

  • STEP 4

    To serve
    Spread a pancake with a little plum sauce. Top with the shredded duck, a few pieces of cucumber and spring onion.
