Emily's Five Spice Duck breast with green bean salad
Five Spice Duck breast with green bean salad
2 duck breasts
Score the skin of the duck breasts in a crisscross pattern with a very sharp knife. Season the duck breast generously with salt and the five spice and rub into the skin thoroughly.
Place the duck breasts, skin-side down, on a dry pan and cook over very low heat to render down most of the fat about 8-10 minutes
Now turn up the heat and fry until the skin is crisp. Turn the duck breasts over and cook the other side for another 3-4 minutes. Just before the duck is ready, drizzle the honey and soy sauce over. Toss and turn the duck in the honey and soy and cook until the liquid has reduced to a syrup. Transfer the duck to a warm plate and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Get a pan of boiling water for the beans with a large pinch of salt. Add the beans to the water and cook for no more than one minute. Meanwhile, crush the hazelnuts lightly with a pestle and mortar. Drain the beans thoroughly and pat dry with kitchen paper. Whisk the oils and sherry vinegar together with some seasoning. Toss the beans in the vinaigrette to taste.
To serve, place the bean salad off centre on warm plates. Slice the duck lengthways and place on top. Drizzle any remaining pan juices over and finish with a small drizzle of the vinaigrette
