Ingredients

  • Serves 4-6 people
  • 1 whole duck

  • 500 g plums (halved and deseeded) - It’s best to use firmer plums for this recipe, so they hold their shape in the oven.

  • 1 yellow onion (peeled and cut into wedges)

  • 1 tbsp chinese five spice powder

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp light soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp honey - you can replace honey with maple syrup for a stronger flavour.

Instructions

  1. Slow-roast the duck

    • Preheat the oven to 160C.
    • Rub the Chinese five spice powder and salt evenly all over the duck, then place it breast side down in a deep roasting pan.
    • Bake in the oven for one hour.

    | For a less spiced flavour, leave the Chinese five spice out or replace with ground ginger for an even more Christmassy flavour.

  2. Add the flavourings

    • Take the duck out of the oven, and carefully drain away any fat that has accumulated in the roasting pan.
    • Turn the duck around, so it’s sitting breast side up.
    • Place the plums and onion wedges around the duck, then drizzle them with the soy sauce and honey.
    • Return the duck to the oven and bake for another hour.


Plate and Serve!

| Roasting the duck breast side down for the first hour ensures that all that indulgent duck fat runs through the breast, preventing any dryness.

Plate and Serve!
