Chef’s Tips

Duck maybe blanched ahead of time and kept uncovered in the refrigerator until required. This also assists in drying the skin for extra crispyness.

Cooked duck maybe re-crisped in a hot oven 200°c for 10 minutes.

August 8, 2016 – This was so easy and very tasty, we used a wok to baste the duck in which made it easy, air dried in the fridge for a few hrs before cooking, delicious will certainly do this again plus use it with chicken.

March 3, 2016 – Delicious! Couldn't believe how simply it was to make and it tasted so similar to the one I buy from Asian restaurant. Made it for a small family party. It was hard to convince people I made it myself.
