For duck leg confit

  • 100g Maldon salt
  • 5g Crushed black pepper
  • 12g Garlic
  • 25g Caster sugar
  • 4g Lemon thyme
  • 1 stick Lemon grass

Blend all the above ingredients to a coarse paste

Season the duck leg with this. (If you want to be cheffy and precise put 50 grams of the above mix to 1 kg of duck leg and refrigerate for one day). Keep turning every couple of hours, if time allows.

The nest day wash the duck leg and confit it in duck fat on a low heat (140C???) for around 3-4hrs until it is tender.

When your guests arrive put the duck leg skin side down in a non-stick pan on a gentle heat with some of the duck fat and let it crisp up to perfection!

Put the crisp duck leg in a bowl and pour over the beautiful warm broth. Add the cooked peas, raw?? Chinese cabbage  …and voila !!! you have your pot au feu ‘Asiatique’.
