Chinese Duck Pancakes

Chinese Duck Pancakes

We had a roast duck and some leftovers so I thought that Chinese-style pancakes would be just a thing. And as we have a Chinese New Year tomorrow it is good to celebrate with this delicious, easy, ‘mmm’ factor snack.

Chinese Duck Pancakes

6-8 ready-made Chinese-style pancakes
2 cooked duck breasts or any duck meat, cut into strips
6 spring onions, trimmed and cut into thin strips
½ cucumber, cut into thin batons
4-6 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp butter

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Melt the butter and add duck meat. Add 1 tbsp of hosin sauce and fry gently for 5 minutes. Meanwhile warm up ready-made pancakes. Peel them apart to separate the layers and steam or warm them up in the microwave.

First spread hoisin sauce on each pancake and then arrange the spring onions and cucumber. Add few pieces of duck and gently roll up. You can tie each pancake with chive or thin strip of spring onion. Serve immediately.
