Seared Five Spice Duck Breast With Snow Peas And Watercress

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 12 ounces boneless duck breast, skin scored
  • 1 bunch watercress (about 4 ounces), tough stems removed
  • 2 cups snow peas, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Napa cabbage

Directions

  • To make the dressing, combine the rice vinegar, vegetable oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, grated ginger, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  • Combine the remaining salt and the five-spice powder and sprinkle the mixture over the duck. Place a nonstick frying pan over high heat until hot. Place the duck, skin side down, in the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Turn the breasts, reduce the heat and cook until medium-rare, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove the duck from the pan, place on a cutting board, and let rest for 5 minutes. Do not cover the duck or the skin will not be crisp.
  • In a large bowl, combine the watercress, snow peas and cabbage. Pour the dressing over the top and toss to coat. Divide the salad among 4 serving plates. Cut the duck into slices on the diagonal. Arrange the slices on each salad and serve.
