1. Place the duck breasts in a zip lock bag or bowl and add the Chinese duck marinade and Chinese five spice. Mix together well.

2. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/Gas mark 7. Place the duck breasts (include the marinade) skin side down on a roasting tray. Turn the heat down to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas mark 6 as soon as they go into the oven. Roast for 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, start preparing your salad. Into a large salad bowl add the lettuce, cucumber, pomegranate, spring onions and optional avocado. Toss in a little olive oil and a little salt and pepper if you like.

4. Take the duck out of the oven and allow to rest for a minute or 2 on a chopping board. Then slice each breast as thinly as you like and mix through the bowl of salad.

5. Divide the salad between 2 serving bowls and drizzle the hoi sin sauce on top. Get stuck in!
