  5. To finish remove the duck from the cooker and place into a warmed dish. Pour over the sauce.
  6. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the duck and place under a low grill to toast.

Serving suggestion
Serve on top of a Chinese crispy stir fry or a salad of shredded leaves and carrot.


  • Browning the duck breasts prior to slow cooking removes the excess fat from the duck skin.
  • The duck breast can be sliced or shredded after slow cooking, this makes a crisper finish under the grill.
