Ginger Spice Duck Drumettes

A great way to cook up the duck wings that come attached to duck breasts when you buy them. They are best slow cooked first before crisping up later.

Makes: 12
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 2 hours (slow cooking) plus 10 minutes grilling
  • 12 duck wings (drumettes)
  • 1 cup ginger wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • coriander leaves, for garnish

Combine duck drumettes, ginger wine, garlic and five spice together in a roasting dish and season with salt. Cover with foil and roast at 150°C for 2 hours. Cook under a hot grill for 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally to brown all over, until they are golden and the sauce has been reduced to a glaze to coat the wings. Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds, garnished with coriander leaves.


Chicken drumettes/wings can also be used.
