One x 2kg whole duck, giblets reserved

One red onion

Olive oil

Chinese five-spice powder

One clementine.


Get your meat out of the fridge and up to room temperature before you cook it. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 180C / 350 F/ Gas four.

Peel the onions and cut them into wedges and place them in a roasting tray with the giblets with a splash of water.

Rub the duck all over with one tablespoon of oil, one tablespoon of Chinese five-spice and a good pinch of sea salt.  

Halve the clementine and place it in the cavity then sit the duck directly on the bars of the oven, with the tray of onions and giblets underneath to catch the tasty fat.  

Roast for two hours, or until the duck is crispy and cooked through, turning the onions occasionally to prevent them from catching.

While the duck cooks, prep the garnishes. Trim and halve the spring onions and carrots, then finely slice lengthways and finely slice the cucumber with the chilli. Pick the herb leaves and cut the lime into wedges.

Remove the cooked duck to a platter, cover, and rest for 30 minutes before eating. Pour all the fat from the tray into a jar, cool and place in the fridge for tasty cooking another day.
