Duck pancakes with plum sauce & trimmings

serves 4 people

  • 4 duck legs (work on one leg each, or more if you are a big eater)
  • Chicken stock

Place the duck legs & stock in a large pot, bring to the boil then reduce and simmer for 2-3 hours or until the meat is tender and falls off the bone. Remove from stock, pick all meat off bones and set aside.

Strain the stock and reserve it to use when reheating the duck meat.

When you are ready to eat, heat a large frying pay, add the duck meat in a pan with a ladle full of the stock and fry until meat is crispy.

Plum sauce

  • Umi boshi
  • 1 cup ketchup manis
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Soak the umi in water for half an hour. Place in a food processor with half of the soaking water and blitz until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve to ensure a silky paste. Add ketchup manis and honey and whisk to combine.

Serve with all the trimmings;
Rice pancakes
