A great Chinese-spiced lunch dish – or divide it into four portions for a dinner party starter.


Duck Breast, Skinless, raw

300 g, at room temperature

Chinese 5 Spice

1 teaspoons, level

Olive Oil

2 teaspoons


½ teaspoons, level

Smooth Mustard

¼ teaspoons, level

Wholegrain Mustard

½ teaspoons, level


1 medium, segmented and juice reserved

Salad leaves

100 g

Red onion(s)

1 small, sliced thinly


1 medium, 4 tbsp of seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/200ºC/fan oven 180ºC. Dust the duck with the Chinese five spice. Heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the duck for 5 minutes until brown all over.
  2. Place the duck breasts on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, cover and leave to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. Combine the remaining olive oil, honey, mustards and juice from the grapefruit to make the dressing. Divide the salad leaves between 2 plates and top with the duck slices and grapefruit segments. Scatter over the onion and pomegranate seeds and serve drizzled with the dressing.
