Remove the skin from the duck breasts and cut the duck into thin slices. Put the duck slices in a bowl with a pinch of salt, the white pepper, rice wine or dry sherry and the cornstarch. Mix well.

Heat a wok over a high heat and pour in the peanut oil. Heat the oil to 350F or until a cube of bread dropped in turns golden brown in 15 seconds and floats to the surface.

Shallow fry the duck in the oil for about 2 mins, stirring now and again, until golden and crispy on the outside.

Take the wok off the heat, remove the duck with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent kitchen paper. Pour the oil.

Return 1 tbs of the oil to the wok and return the wok to a high heat. When the oil starts to smoke, add the ginger and stir fry for a few seconds, then add the red pepper and stir fry for 1 minute.

Return the fried duck slices to the wok. Next add the orange juice, lime juice and soy sauce and toss together until well combined.
