Remove outer leaves from lemongrass. Chop the inside finely. Clean chilies, score lengthwise, remove seeds, rinse and chop.

Cut 3 roots of coriander into small pieces, rinse and chop.

Rinse lime and cilantro leaves, rub dry and chop.

Finely pound prepared ingredients in a mortar or coarsely grind in a hand blender. Mix in shrimp paste and oil. Rinse the duck breast fillets, rub dry and score the skin. Sear in a frying pan without fat, first on the skin side for about 5 min, then on the meat side for 2-3 min. Roast over medium heat, turning, for another 10-15 min.

Clean, rinse and drain spinach. Dice tofu. Season duck breast fillets with salt and remove. Wrap in aluminum foil and rest. Pour out all but 2 tbsp of the drippings from the frying pan.
