Prepare steamer & place on high heat. Pierce the skin of the duck breast and truss its legs

Once steamer has reached boiling point place whole duck inside breast side down for 30 mins.

Meanwhile finely slice cabbage, tail beans and set aside.

Once duck has steamed for 30 mins, remove to rest for 10-15 mins & preheat oven to 240deg.

While duck roasts, blanch beans for 1-2 mins in salted water. Then  
sauté beans and cabbage with butter, salt & pepper. This should take approx 15 mins.
