Make your own version of this Chinese classic dish. Serves 4-6.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients for the aromatic liquor in a large pan and whisk together. Add the duck legs to the pan and place in the fridge overnight.
  2. When ready to cook, place the pan onto a high heat and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and let simmer for 1  hour and 15 minutes until the meat comes easily away from the bone. At this point you can remove the legs from the liquid, cool and then place in the fridge until you are ready to finish them off under the grill.
  3. Carefully remove the legs from the aromatic liquor and place under a hot grill until the skin goes crispy.
  4. Fork the meat from the bone and serve with the warm Chinese pancakes, spring onions, cucumber strips and hoi sin or plum sauce.

  • One of my favourite Duck recipes as it provides a tasty, light, nutritious meal.
    I usually buy it ready prepared with all the ingredients included ( the 1/2 Duck just needs roasting )
    However can't wait to try this recipe; the aromatic liquor sounds amazing as it contains some of my most used & loved spices.
