A mouth wateringly simple duck stir fry, made with thin strips of duck breast marinated with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, honey and orange, Stir fried with a selection of delicious green vegetables, asparagus, broccoli, pak choi and spring onions served on a bed of noodles
Duck is a delicious alternative to the usual chicken breasts for a stir fry and this recipe uses duck breast strips, so it cooks quickly,
Remove the skin from the duck breasts and cut the meat into strips, marinate in the ginger, garlic, soy, honey, and orange marinade. The skin is not used in this recipe, but if you love crispy duck skin, pop it in the oven to crisp and then cut it into thin strips and sprinkle it over the finished dish. Cut the asparagus, pak choi and spring onions into slices and the broccoli into small florets. Toast the sesame seeds in the wok and set aside. Remove the duck from the marinade, save the marinade. Stir fry the duck pieces and then set a side. Stir fry the vegetables add the marinade and orange juice to the vegetables allow the sauce to thicken then return the duck to the pan and cook for a minute or too. Serve the stir fry duck in a bowl sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds and crispy duck skin
