Hoisin Duck Legs:


  • 1 duck leg
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place the duck leg in a roasting dish and brush them with the hoisin sauce mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  4. Roast the duck leg in the preheated oven for 35-45 minutes, basting occasionally with the remaining sauce, until the skin is crispy and the meat is tender.
  5. Remove the duck leg from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

Roasted Baby Potatoes:


  • 500g baby potatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp flour (to make them extra crispy)
  • Cajun seasoning to taste (super important trust me)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the halved baby potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle them with olive oil. Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning, flour, salt and pepper, and toss to coat evenly.
  2. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Roast the potatoes in the oven at 200°C (400°F) for 25-35 minutes or until they are golden and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

  • Lettuce chopped (and whatever other veggies you like, I usually cheat and buy a premade salad bowl)
