  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. For the filling, place duck legs on a baking tray, season with salt and cook for 40 minutes.
  3. Drain away any excess fat and allow them to cool slightly.
  4. In the meantime, make the dressing by combining all the ingredients in a bowl. Reserve for later.
  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.
  6. Plunge the cabbage leaves into the water and cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Remove and place in a bowl of icy cold water. Now pat dry with a tea towel to remove excess water.

  9. Place about 2 tbls of the duck mixture at the base of each cabbage leaf and tightly roll into a cylinder.
  10. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  11. To reheat, poach the wrapped cabbage leaves in a pot of simmering water for 8-10 minutes. Place in the centre of the plate with a spoonful of the dressing.
