  • Pat the duck breast dry, especially the skin
  • Mix 2.5 tbsp of oyster sauce, 2 tbsp of soy sauce, ½ tbsp of five-spice powder, minced garlic, and 1 tbsp of honey.
  • Place the duck breast in the sauce and ensure that the skin isn’t touching the sauce. Let it rest in the fridge overnight (make sure it’s not shut closed and there are some air left) - poke holes over plastic wrap to allow air to flow in
  • Add duck in the air fryer skin side facing up and pat dry the skin one last time. Set it to 300 for 15 minutes
  • In a bowl, mix 1 tbsp of honey, 3 tbsp of warm water, ½ tbsp of five-spice powder.
  • After 15 minutes, add honey mixture all over the duck breast and fry at 400 for 10 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.


You can marinate the duck breast and leave it in the fridge for up to 2 days. The longer you marinate the duck, the more flavourful it will become.
