Duck leg confit:

• Rub the duck legs with the salt and leave in the fridge overnight
• The following morning, wash the salt off and place duck in a small, deep baking dish and cover with goose fat
• Place in 120 °C oven for 2½ hours or until when you pull a bone it comes out clean
• Once cooked, remove from fat and discard remaining bones but leave the main one for presentation
• To make the glaze, combine honey, mustard and Wasabi & Sesame
• Spoon glaze over each duck leg and grill until golden, keep basting the duck throughout the process
• Make the Asian slaw by combining cabbage, ginger, sugar, vinegar and lime, add Chili Explosion to taste
• To serve, place a generous spoonful of slaw on each plate, place the duck on top and finish with a spoonful of coriander oil
