Place on a rack over 500ml water to roast for 1 hour until the flesh pulls away from the bone, the skin is crisp , the meat is cooked through (with no pink meat). Leave to rest for 10-15 minutes before shredding the flesh and skin and set aside, discarding the bones.

    2. Make the dressing: place the fish sauce and rice vinegar into a small saucepan with the caster sugar. Heat until simmering and the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat then stir in the chopped garlic and chilli along with the lime juice. Pour into a small bowl and allow to cool.

    4. Serve the salad immediately, topped with the duck, scattered with peanuts and the crispy fried onions.
