  • 2 duck breasts
  • 50g dried vermicelli rice noodles
  • 320g Waitrose mixed pepper stir fry
  • ½ 25g pack mint, leaves torn
  • ½ 28g pack coriander, roughly chopped


  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 25g fresh root ginger, grated
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced (approx. ½-1)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 essential Waitrose lime, juice
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp essential Waitrose clear honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Score the fat on each duck breast in a criss-cross pattern; season. Heat a frying pan and dry-fry the duck breasts, skin-side down, over a low-medium heat for about 8 minutes, until the fat is crisp. Turn and cook for another 2 minutes, then transfer to a baking tray, skin-side up, and roast for 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, put the noodles in a heatproof bowl, cover with just-boiled water and set aside for 10 minutes. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bowl. Rest the duck breasts for 5 minutes, then slice. Drain the noodles, refresh under cold running water and drain again. Toss with the vegetables, herbs and dressing, divide between plates and top with the sliced duck.
