Begin the dish by preparing the mushrooms. Remove most of the stalks from the mushrooms and clean them with a pastry brush to remove any dirt. Cut into quarters and set aside in a heatproof bowl
100g of shiitake mushroom
Add the sherry vinegar, caster sugar and white wine to a pan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and pour directly over the mushrooms. Leave to pickle for 15 minutes, strain and refrigerate until required
100ml of sherry vinegar
50g of caster sugar
50ml of white wine
Clean the spring onions, removing the first layer of skin, then slice thinly at an angle
2 bunches of spring onions
Place the soy sauce in a pan over a medium heat and reduce by half. Allow to cool slightly before adding the spring onions. Stir to combine then set aside

Lightly score the skin of the duck breast. Place onto a warm char-grill, skin side down, and render as much fat from the skin as possible. Increase the heat and cook until the skin is crispy, then turn and finish on the other side for another 4-5 minutes
