From the Test Kitchen

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
We cook duck for a longer time with the skin side down to release the fat and get the skin deliciously crispy. Letting it rest with the skin side up will help to maintain that crispy texture while keeping the meat nice and juicy.

INGREDIENT IN FOCUS
A staple of Thai cuisine, yellow curry paste is a concentrated blend of hot chiles, lemongrass, turmeric, and more, which lends incredibly bold flavor and delightful heat to our wonton noodles.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans; halve crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, combine sliced cucumbers, sliced radishes, sesame seeds, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Halve the lime crosswise. In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, soy glaze, honey (kneading the packet before opening), the juice of both lime halves, and as much of the curry paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Pick the mint leaves off the stems. 

Cook the duck
2 Cook the duck

Pat the duck dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), on medium until hot. Add the seasoned duck, skin side down. Cook 9 to 11 minutes, or until browned and the skin is crispy. Flip and cook 4 to 5 minutes for medium (145°F), or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board, skin side up, and let rest at least 10 minutes. Carefully drain the duck fat into a small bowl. (Set aside to solidify. Cover and refrigerate for future use, or discard if desired.) Wipe out the pan.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for duck. 
Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, seafood or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
