Method

  1. Place the duck fillets in a bowl. Pour over the vinegar and maple syrup and stir to mix well. Cover the bowl and leave in the fridge for at least an hour for the duck to marinate, stirring it occasionally.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, or wok, and add the red pepper, baby corn and sugar-snap peas, and cook over a high heat for 1-2 mins. Add the drained duck to the pan and cook for a further 2-3 mins, until the duck is cooked to your liking and the vegetables are just cooked.
  3. Stir in the hoisin sauce and 150ml (¼ pint) water. Bring the mixture to the boil. Mix the cornflour with 1 tbsp water and pour it into the pan, stirring well to thicken the juices.
  4. Serve the duck immediately on a bed of boiled rice.
