Do not discard the smoked duck fat oil.

Quick fry the pea sprouts with the remaining oil.

This will enhance the flavour of the pea sprouts.

Sliced the smoked duck breast thinly.

Wash and pat dry the pea sprouts and set aside.

Arrange the pea sprouts on the plate, followed by a  few sliced of the cooked smoked duck breast.

Add some caramelized walnuts at the side to complement the salad.

You don’t need any sauce to go with this salad.

You have the slight salty flavour from the smoked duck breast, the duck fats that infused into the pea sprouts and the sweetness from the caramelized walnuts.

Smoked Duck Breast with Fruity Slices

Ingredients:

1 piece frozen smoked duck meat

Strawberries

Green Kiwifruits

Method:

Defrozed  the smoked duck meat.

For faster cooking, sliced the smoked duck breast and pan fry them.

I used the Happy Call Pan for frying.

(You do not require any oil to pan fry the meat as the duck meat has sufficient fats to prevent the meat from burning).

When done, set aside to cool.

In the meantime, washed and cut the strawberries and green kiwifruits into slices.

In a mixing bowl, add the fruits.

Sliced the cooked smoked duck into piece and toss together with the fruits salad.

You can add mango puree dressing for more flavour or just serve without  any dressing.

The refreshing taste of both fruit mixtures compliment the sliced smoked duck very well.

Have fun experimenting and adding more flavour to a piece of frozen smoked duck breast.

 

Happy cooking!

Smoked Duck with Crepe Wrapped

 

Ingredients:

1 box of Frozen Smoked Duck (two pieces of boneless duck breast separately packed)

DSC_2670
1 packet of Crepe
1 large Zucchini
Hoi Sin Sauce (sweet sauce)
Few stalks of Scallions

Method:

You can either buy a packet of frozen smoked duck or purchase ready cooked duck meat from deli section of most supermarkets.
Either you preheat the smoked duck in the microwave oven or pan fry the meat.
Cut the crepe into reasonable sizes if you wish to have a smaller roll.
I normally use one piece of crepe for each roll.
Trim the zucchini into lengthwise pieces and set aside.
Slice the duck breast into smaller slices.
Slice the scallion into thin lengthwise sizes as well. Place them in a bowl of ice water for crunchiness.
Drain and set aside.
On a large plate, place a piece of the cooked smoked duck meat with few pieces of zucchini and scallions.
Add a reasonable size of hoi sin sauce over the ingredients and fold the crepe.

 

Tips:

The smoked duck breast meat provides an alternative to Peking Duck and its quick to fix.
