  1. Heat oven to gas 7, 210°C, fan 190°C. Mix the spices together in a small bowl. Rub the duck legs with oil then rub with the spices. Put the duck legs on a rack over a baking tray and cook for 40-45 mins until cooked through with no pink showing, and the skin is really golden and crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 15 mins.
  2. Use two forks to shred the meat away from the bones, divide between wraps, add shredded cucumber and spring onion and a drizzle of hoi sin sauce, roll up and enjoy.
