- 120 gm

Garlic paste – 1 tsp

Method:

Marinate the duck overnight in soya sauce, red wine, pepper powder, ketchup, honey, brown sugar, vegetable oil and garlic paste. Grill the marinated duck for five minutes.

A note before marinating: Gently simmer the marinade (ingredients used for marinating) until the raw flavour goes and the sauce thickens.

Sauté mushroom with butter and add to the sauce, place the grilled duck and simmer for five minutes. Be careful with the salt as soya sauce might already have salt.

Plate it with mushroom and leeks as base, remove the duck place it over the base and garnish with tomato, zucchini, sprout and coriander leaf.
