Chef Katie Sutton of Food and Drink Resources developed this recipe using Barilla linguine. She takes flavor cues from Vietnam and combines them with crispy Peking duck for an Asian-style dish.


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 2

Make the marinade by whisking together the wine, sesame oil, soy sauce, and cornstarch. Toss with the duck and marinate for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Make the dressing by whisking together the serranos, ginger, garlic, sugar, fish sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, and lime juice. Set aside.

Step 4

Make the salad by tossing together the mint, cilantro, cucumber, and daikon. Set aside.

Step 5

For each serving, to order: Heat 2 tsp. canola oil in a pan and saute 1 tsp garlic, 1 tsp ginger, and 1 1/2 tsp jalapenos for 30 seconds.

Step 6

Reheat 1 1/4 cups pasta in simmering water. Drain and add to the garlic pan with 3 oz. duck, 2 Tbsp hoisin, and 1 Tbsp soy sauce. Toss and heat through. Plate.

Step 7

Toss 1/4 cup cucumber salad with 1 Tbsp dressing and place it on the pasta.
