Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. In a small bowl, mix the stem ginger, 1 tbsp soy and the juice and zest 1 lime. Put the duck on a foil-lined baking tray, scrunch up the sides of the foil around the duck, then pour over the marinade. Bake for 45 mins, turning the duck over halfway through cooking.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the sugar snap peas and boil for 30 secs, then scoop out (don’t drain the water), then transfer to a colander and run under cold water until cool. Bring the water back to the boil and cook the rice noodles following pack instructions. Meanwhile, slice the sugar snap peas on the diagonal.

  3. When the noodles are cooked, drain well. Put in a large bowl, add the remaining soy, the stem ginger syrup, lime zest and juice, cooled sugar snap peas, beansprouts, radishes, mint and chilli. Shred the duck and add this, along with any juices collected in the foil. Toss everything together, then serve.

Didn't do it for me at all - dish was flavourless. Also, using five grated balls of stem ginger, the juice of one lime and a tablespoon of soy sauce deosn't give something of a consistency that it was possible to 'pour'. This mixture burned a little and the duck was OK, but didn't pick up much essence from the mixture either. Whole mint leaves were also too pungent, I'd suggest shredding them.

Made this to use up a jar of stem ginger that had been sitting in my fridge for some time! Now making again as still have some left. To make this more store cupboard friendly I left out the bean sprouts and radishes and used bottled lime juice instead of a fresh lime. Still delicious.

Great recipe, a good balance of spice, crispiness and the earthy taste of duck. I think chicken would also work. Ate it cold for lunch next day which wasn't bad either!
