Servings: 4
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 30 minutes
Ingredients
1/2 small red onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 red Thai chiles, seeded and cut into thin strips
1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 pound duck breast, skin discarded and meat cut into 1/2-inch pieces
12 large shrimp, shelled and deveined (about 10 ounces)
Sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 tablespoons peanut or canola oil
Small cilantro leaves, for garnish
Directions
1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the salt, cumin seeds, peanut oil and cilantro. Season with a pinch of salt and toss to evenly coat the duck and shrimp. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast the cumin seeds over moderately low heat, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.

3. In a wok, heat the peanut oil until shimmering. Add the duck and shrimp and stir-fry over high heat until the duck is golden and medium-rare and the shrimp are just cooked through, about 3 minutes.

4. Season with sea salt and transfer to a serving plate.

5. Scatter the toasted cumin on top and garnish with the cilantro leaves.

SERVE WITH Steamed rice.
