Method

1. Prepare the vegetables. Mix the ginger, chilli and Garlic & Chinese Five Spice Soy Sauce into the duck pieces to season, and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
2. Heat a wok over a high heat and add the sunflower oil, giving it a swirl to coat the sides of the wok. Add the duck slices and stir-fry for a few seconds to release their aroma and flavour into the oil (letting the meat settle in the wok for a few seconds before flipping and tossing until it colours and caramelises at the edges). As the duck browns, add the rice wine or vegetable stock. Quickly follow with the broccoli and spring onions and toss, cooking for 1 minute. Add hoi sin stir fry sauce and udon thick noodles and toss well together, cooking for another minute until all the ingredients are well-coated in the sauce. Remove from the heat and season with 1 more tbsp dark soy sauce.
3. To serve, ladle and divide the noodles onto two serving plates, and eat immediately.

Ching’s Tip
For a zesty zing, squeeze lemon juice over each serving.
