Preparation steps


For the marinade, peel and chop the ginger and shallot. Wash and clean the chili pepper and cut into rings. Place in a saucepan with soy sauce, 2 tbsp vinegar, syrup and 3 tbsp water and simmer at medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat.


Clean and wash the rhubarb and snap peas. Cut the rhubarb into bite-sized pieces. Heat oil in a pan. Cook the rhubarb for 4 minutes on a medium heat. Deglaze with remaining rice vinegar. Add sugar snap peas and half the marinade.


Dab duck breast fillets dry and make a diamond-shaped incision on the skin side. Place the duck breast with the skin side on the grill and grill for about 8-10 minutes at medium to high heat; turn and grill for a further 8 minutes on the meat side, brushing with the rest of the marinade. Remove duck breast from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes.


Mix the sugar snap salad with sesame seeds. Cut the duck breast into strips, place on plates and serve with the rhubarb-sugar-pepper salad.
