Buckwheat noodles with vegetables and duck

Grilled Duck Salad with Soba Noodles

by Berkeley Wellness  

Soba (buckwheat) noodles have an earthy taste and slightly firm, chewy texture. We used supermarket chili sauce (the kind you find right next to the ketchup) in our dressing.


  • Chinese-Style Grilled Duck Breast or Cajun Grilled Duck
  • 6 ounces soba (Japanese buckwheat) noodles
  • ¼ cup chili sauce
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch watercress, tough ends trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin matchsticks


1. Grill the duck. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling water, cook the soba noodles according to package directions. Drain well.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the chili sauce, lime juice, honey, ginger, and salt. Add the noodles to the bowl, tossing to coat.

3. Add the watercress and bell pepper, and toss again. Slice the duck crosswise on the diagonal. Serve the duck on a mound of the soba noodle mixture.
