Do try this creation – it is truly a palate-blowing experience. Each time I return to Koh Samui in Thailand it is the first meal I have that cures the fatigue and jetlag of the flight.


  • 4 duck breast fillets, roasted or grilled and thinly sliced
  • fresh crisp lettuce leaves
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 4</


Arrange the slices of duck on a bed of lettuce on a serving dish. Sprinkle over the shallots, spring onions and cucumber and celery, if you want.

To make the dressing, put the fish sauce, lime juice, garlic, chillies and sugar into a small pan, and heat through gently. The actual amount of ingredients is just a guide and you can experiment until it is to your liking. Pour the warm dress
