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.

I used this recipe yesterday. Cutting the finished duck up and it was turned into a spicy roast duck noodle soup. The flavours in the duck were outstanding. I will be using this recipe again and again,

I have cooked this one for dinner and to my surprise it’s so easy and delicious! I have put my own twist right at the end and this is one of my signature family dish from now on.

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.

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.
