Chef's tip

If you reduce the quantities to make this for two, halve the duck and orange juice, use one lemon grass stalk, but I would be inclined to leave the other ingredients as they are.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
