What's For Dinner? - Quick Duck Salad

This is one of my 30 minute meals, expect i made this in 25 minutes - Jamie Oliver eat your heart out! Some ingredients I had in my cupboard; noodles, vegetables, chili and I have fresh herbs growing on my kitchen window. This recipe makes enough for 1 dinner and a small portion for lunch the next day, which is perfect if you have no time.

1 Duck Fillet
1/4 Red Chili
1.5 Blocks of Noodles
1/2 Green Pepper
1/2 Carrot
5 Green Beans
4 Mangetout
6 Florets of Broccoli
1 Packet of Szechuan


  1. The duck fillets was skinned already so there was no prep to do, I wanted to keep it as healthy as possible so I didn't use oil at all in this recipe. If you have a hot enough pan you don't really need oil.
  2. Pan a griddle pan on a high heat and have the kettle boiling for the water
  3. When the pan is hot put the duck on the pan, add the boiling water to the noodles.
  4. Chop your vegetables and set aside.
  5. Turn you duck to cook on the other side
  6. Once it is cooked take off and set on a board to rest - you need to rest your meat to make it easier to cut.
  7. While the duck is resting using the same pan, quickly cook your vegetables, I find with stir-fry it is better if the vegetables are al dente (a bit of a bite still in them). 
  8. Add your packet sauce
  9. By this stage you noodles would be cooked, drain and add them to the pan with the vegetables.
  10. Toss the pan a few times to make sure everything is incorporated
  11. Add the duck and serve, 
  12. Garnish with some fresh herbs
