Recipe's preparation

  1. Place ginger, garlic and chilli (if using) into mixing  bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 7. Transfer into a bowl and set aside.

  2. Score duck skin in a criss-cross pattern then rub with five spice powder, season and place into Varoma dish skin side down. Place water, stock and 1 tbsp soy sauce into mixing bowl. Place Varoma into position and steam 9 min/Varoma/speed 1

  3. Place greens and broccolini onto Varoma tray, insert Varoma tray and steam 6 min/Varoma/speed 1. Transfer greens and broccolini into ThermoServer. Transfer stock into a bowl and set aside. Pat duck dry with paper towel. 

  4. Heat a small frying pan over high heat without oil. Place duck breast skin side down into hot pan and press to flatten. Reduce heat to medium and cook 2–4 minutes or until skin is very crispy and most of the fat is cooked out. Turn duck over and cook for further 1–2 minutes. Transfer skin side up into ThermoServer to rest.

  5. Drain ¾ of the fat from the frying pan, leave ¼ in the pan to create a reduction. Return pan to high heat and de-glaze with honey, 80 g reserved stock and 1 tbsp soy sauce. Reduce for a few minutes then set aside.

  6. Place sesame oil and reserved garlic-ginger mix into mixing bowl and heat 1 min/100°C/speed 1.

  7. Add mushrooms and cook 5 min/100°C/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 1.

  8. Add greens and broccolini and combine 10 sec/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 2. Transfer into simmering basket to drain.

  • Sadly this one didn't work

    Submitted by Vablo81 on 1. July 2016 - 21:44.

    Sadly this one didn't work out for me. the spice/sauce/ flavour combination was lovely however the duck was tough and the veggies over done. In saying that it's the first time I've cooked duck so I'm a total novice.

    Submitted by Angeliquevc on 7. April 2016 - 15:05.

    Really enjoyed cooking my first duck in the varoma. Used this recipe as a guide for timing - steamed as per the recipe. Chilled then roasted for another 30 minutes giving it a burst at the end under the grill to crisp up the skin a little. Would definitely do again.

    Absolutely delicious & so easy to make. I used the leftover stock when I made it the 2nd time round & the left over sauce keeps well & is great for spring rolls!! I reduced the honey to 1 tbsp. The whole fam loved it! Thank you for sharing an amazing dish.

    Delicious, duck was very tender, would have cooked them for longer if had used larger breasts, served with noodles and other vegetables as I didn't have Asian greens, will definitely make again!

    I have had trouble finding plain duck breasts at my local supermarkets so happy you can make it with a chicken breasts instead ...Do we need to adjust the cooking time for chicken breasts fot this recipe?

  • Can you use chicken instead

    Submitted by Sanam on 25. February 2015 - 13:46.

    Can you use chicken instead of duck (not a huge fan)... just reduce the cooking time?

  • Excellent meal for taste.

    Submitted by Bods on 18. February 2015 - 06:32.

    Excellent meal for taste.  The duck breasts that we had were huge and as a result they were cooked perfectly for my taste but I knew that my husband would say that they were rare.  With this in mind I smoothered them in the wonderful sauce and turned the lights down low.  He thought I had deliberately served a romantic meal and it was a great success and one to cooked again.

    Submitted by Shivani on 24. July 2014 - 14:49.

    Delicious but similarly to another person, confused as to whatt to do with the left over stock? I'm thinking it might have been needed to make the mushroom and greens but not so sure. Either way, amazing recipe and is a blessing for us sleep deprived parents needing a small date night with this meal. The duck was cooked perfectly. Happily will make this again tmrc_emoticons.)

    This was a fantastic meal.  Easy to make and great flavours.  I've never cooked duck before, but it turned out perfect in the thermomix.  I can't believe I've been able to cook such great meals since I got my thermomix.  Thanks for the recipe.

    Submitted by Hubblesbubbles on 14. February 2014 - 22:49.

    Great recipe. 

    I made this for our Valentines dinner tonight. I was a bit scared when I first read through it but it was really quite easy.  Great flavours and was well received. 

    Although, bit confused at Step 8 as to what needs to be drained and if and where the excess liquid (stock) from steaming is used. I added 1/4 of it to the greens mix at Step 8
