Kumquats are a small citrus fruit, like an orange, but the whole fruit is edible, adding a great tangy flavour to this easy stir-fry dish. Kumquats are believed to symbolise good fortune in the Far East.
If pak choi is not available, substitute shredded Chinese leaves or young spring greens. * To make a vegetarian version of this dish, replace the duck with firm smoked tofu. Look out for tofu made with added almonds and sesame seeds, for extra flavour, texture and nutrients.
Very tasty, a great use of kumquats (I bought them on a whim, having no idea what to actually do with them) and goes a large way to achieving the good old 'five a day' we're always being told we need The only thing I did differently was to add a little more soy and plum sauce, but only to suit my boyfriend's taste. I'd advise anyone else against adding much more of the sauces than advised, just because of just how salty and sugary they can be. Thanks for posting, Maggie! - 21 Dec 2014
