Cook the Duck

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Remove the confit duck legs from their packaging.

Place onto a lined baking tray, skin-side up, and season with salt and pepper.

Roast on the top shelf of your oven for 25-30 mins. IMPORTANT: Ensure the duck is piping hot throughout.

Prep the Veg

Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice the radishes.

Peel, trim and halve the carrot widthways. Quarter lengthways, then cut into thin matchsticks.

Trim the baby gem and separate the leaves to make your ‘cups’. Cut the lime into wedges.

Prep the Garlic

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Make the Sauce

When the duck has 3-4 mins remaining, heat a small saucepan on medium heat with a drizzle of oil.

Once hot, add the garlic, ginger puree and chilli flakes. Cook until fragrant, 1 min. 
Add the hoisin sauce, honey and water (see pantry), stirring to combine, 1-2 mins.

Shred the Duck

When the duck has cooked, transfer to a large bowl and use two forks to shred the meat from the bones (discard the bones).

Pour in the hoisin ginger sauce from your pan and toss the shredded duck to coat.


Arrange the lettuce leaves on your plates, then fill each leaf with the radish, carrot and hoisin ginger duck.

Garnish with the sesame seeds.

Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.
