  2. Heat a heavy-based frying pan until medium-hot, then lay the duck breasts, fat side down, in the hot pan.
  3. Fry for 3-4 mins until the skin's crisp and golden, then turn over and fry for a further 6-8 mins until the duck's cooked to your liking.
  4. Remove and cover and keep warm. Mix 45ml (3tbsp) each sugar and white wine vinegar, 15ml (1tbsp) each soy sauce and tomato ketchup, 5ml (1tsp) cornflour and 45ml (3tbsp) water.
