Bbq Crispy Duck


  • 1 tbsp hoi sin sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 large heaped tsp of corn flour
  • 1 tsp Chinese cooking wine / or sherry / or rum
  • ¼ tsp five spice powder
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Zest of ½ an orange



  • Mix all ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl. Coat the duck legs in the marinade and leave over night or for a couple of hours so all the flavours can sink in.
  • Cook on the BBQ on a low heat if you have gas or at the end when the coals are not so fierce on a charcoal BBQ. They will take quite a while to cook slowly and crisp up but if you are unsure, put them in the oven to finish cooking them. They will take about 30 minutes to cook.
  • Serve with extra Hoi Sin sauce on the side and a green salad with plenty of spring onion and cucumber.
