Ingredients

  • Duck breast
  • Iodised salt
  • Red cabbage
  • Chicken stock
  • Coconut cream
  • Curry powder
  • Lime juice
  • Whole black peppercorns

Instructions

  • Remove two breasts from the packaging.
  • Rub some iodised salt over the skin of your breasts.
  • Place your breasts into plastic bags and vacuum seal them.
  • Put one of your breasts in the freezer to enjoy on another day.
  • Heat up your water bath to 55 °C and then insert your breast for 1 hour.
  • At the end of 1 hour remove your breast from the water bath and put it into the refrigerator to cool down.
  • Chop up a red cabbage.
  • Put the red cabbage into a large saucepan and add a litre of chicken stock and bring the cabbage and stock to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Drain the cabbage and put into a frying pan and cook to evaporate much of the moisture.
  • Add a can of coconut cream and a couple of tablespoons of curry powder.
  • Bring the cabbage and coconut cream to a simmer.
  • Remove your cooled breast from the refrigerator and remove your breast from the vacuum bag.
  • With a really sharp knife (I use my Dick-brand butchers knife) slice your breast thinly and add to the frying pan with the red cabbage and coconut cream which is reducing.
  • Add the juice of one lemon to the curry red cabbage and duck and stir through.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer the curry cabbage and duck to a bowl and season with whole black peppercorns which has been ground in a mortar with a pestle.
  • Eat with chopsticks.
