Roast Duck with Fruit Sauce

I haven't had to cook much these last couple of days since I had so much food left over in my fridge from Chinese New Year celebrations. It's a great time to feast for us Asians :)

This roast duck with fruit sauce was a dish that I made for new year's to bring over to my sister-in-law's place. It's quite simple to put together- all you have to do is buy the roast duck from a Chinese BBQ shop and then make the sauce to pour over the top of the duck. This dish is great to bring as a pot luck dish to any occasion, especially if you're a bit pressed for time. Happy Chinese New Year everyone!


1 whole roast duck, cut into pieces
2 oranges, cut into segments
1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
¼ cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
½ cup chicken stock
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 tablespoon water
425g can lychees in syrup, drained
225g can pineapple pieces in syrup, drained

  1. Combine orange juice, honey, lemon juice, soy sauces, stock and blended cornflour and water in a small pot. Stir constantly over medium heat until sauce boils and thickens.
  2. Stir in lychees, pineapple and oranges when sauce has cooled slightly.
  3. Arrange chopped roast duck pieces on a platter. Pour the fruit sauce over the top when ready to be served.
