Shredded Duck Salad


Pre heat the duck to 180C.

Season the duck with salt and pepper and place on a wire rack in a baking dish and back for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
While the duck is cooking, make the dressing by combining all the ingredients in a bowl.
In a mortar and pestle crush the rice until it forms a crumb-like texture.

Once the duck is cooked cool and then remove all of the skin. Pick the meat from the bones and mix with the honeydew, grape fruit, cucumber, herbs and peanuts. Pour over the dressing and toss with the dressing. Arrange on a large platter and finally sprinkle with the crushed rice.
