Aromatic Duck Pancake


  • 2 duck breasts
  • 1 average Cucumber roughly chopped
  • 4 average Spring onions, chopped bulbs and tops
  • 1 medium carrot chopped
  • Small soft flour tortilla wraps (or if you can find them, mandarin wraps)
  • Chinese 5 spice
  • Salt
  • Hoisin sauce
  • Plum sauce


  1. Score the duck skin side up and season it with salt and Chinese 5 spice. Make sure you massage the salt and Chinese 5 spice into the duck.
  2. Place the duck, skin side down on a cold pan with NO OIL. Turn up the heat gradually and pan fry for approximately 8 minutes. When the fat is melted turn over and seal the duck breasts before placing in a warm oven at 200’C for 18-20 minutes. Make sure the pan you place the duck in is also hot.
  3. While the duck is cooking prepare the carrots, cucumber and spring onion into ribbons.
  4. Heat the wraps either in the microwave or wrapped in tinfoil in the oven.
  5. Once the duck is cooked let it rest for 10 minutes before shredding it.
  6. Serve with hoisin sauce and/or plum sauce.
