Sweet and sour slices of char-grilled duck on kai lan or pak choi served with tamarind sauce.
Clean and trim the duck and slice into pieces about 1½cm thick.
Marinate the duck in the prepared sauce for at least 6 hours or more to absorb the flavour in the refrigerator.
Barbecue or grill the duck pieces until thoroughly cooked only turning once.
Sauté or blanche kai-lan or pak choi and arrange on the plate in a line for cooked duck to rest on.
Once the duck is cooked, arrange this neatly on the prepared kai-lan or pak choi and pour the tamarind sauce on top of the grilled duck. It should taste refreshingly sweet and sour.
