  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 red Thai chiles, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 pound duck breast, skin discarded and meat cut into 1/2-inch pieces

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the salt, cumin seeds, peanut oil and cilantro. Season with a pinch of salt and toss to evenly coat the duck and shrimp. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast the cumin seeds over moderately low heat, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.

  3. In a wok, heat the peanut oil until shimmering. Add the duck and shrimp and stir-fry over high heat until the duck is golden and medium-rare and the shrimp are just cooked through, about 3 minutes.

  4. Season with sea salt and transfer to a serving plate.

  5. Scatter the toasted cumin on top and garnish with the cilantro leaves.

Serve With

Steamed rice.
