    To make the plum sauce: juice the orange. Blanch and refresh the chives.
    Quarter the plums, remove the stones and place in a saucepan. Add the spices and the orange juice and cook until the plums are soft. Adjust the seasoning. Blitz in a blender until you have a fine puree.

    To serve: cut the spring onions and the cucumber into fine julienne slices.
    Brush some plum sauce over each pancake and then add some shredded duck, spring onion and cucumber. Roll the pancake up and tie with a chive.
    These can be assembled 2-3 hours before serving.
