Japanese Duck


1 teaspoon Coriander, ground
1 teaspoon Cumin, ground
1 teaspoon Cloves, ground
1 teaspoon Turmeric, ground
1 Shallot finely chopped
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
2 ounces Pecan nuts
3 ounces Brown sugar
1 Red chilli finely diced
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Mixed pickling spice
2 tablespoons White wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Water
Mango slices

Make several incisions across the back of the duck. Combine the coriander, cumin, cloves, turmaric, shallot and vegetable oil. Rub over the duck and wrap lightly in plastic for 24 hours. Once marinated, heat a little vegetable oil, in a hot pan and seal the meat, browning the fat. Place into a pre-heated oven at 200C for around 9 minutes.
Prepare the sauce. Combine the nuts, brown sugar, and chilli in a food processor. Whirl to a medium texture. Add the lemon juice and process until smooth.
Once the ducks are cooked, remove from the oven and the pan and leave to rest. Place the pan back on to heat and add the pickling spice, water, white wine vinegar and bring to the boil.
Add the nut and chilli mix and boil, strain the sauce, carve the duck and present with a nest of long bean filled with mango, sweetcorn and mung beans.
