Fusion duck and penne pasta

Fusion duck and penne pasta

Vacuum packed duck breasts

Rather than go and buy noodles, I thought my duck and laksa-paste flavoured soup would work just as well with penne pasta.

Ingredients

  • Sous vide duck breast
  • Penne pasta
  • Spring onions
  • Laksa paste

Instructions

Penne pasta

  1. To maximise the resistant starch content, I cooked the pasta at lunchtime. I drained it and put it into the refrigerator until I needed it. 
  2. I cooked the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.

Duck breast

  1. I cooked this yesterday, and you can find the recipe and full story on the blog.
  2. I took the refrigerated duck breast out of its vacuum bag, dried the duck with absorbent kitchen paper, and then sliced the cold duck meat thinly.

Meal preparation

  1. I cut up some spring onions cutting the white parts at an angle for that fancy look and cutting the green parts to form fine rings.
  2. I boiled some water and added a tablespoon of laksa paste, and stirred it through.
  3. I then added in the cold penne pasta and allowed the pasta to warm through.
  4. I turned off the heat and mixed through the spring onion and sliced duck meat.

How to eat this

  1. Eat this meal from a bowl with chopsticks and a spoon.
