We are firm believers that no Chinese feast is complete without crispy duck pancakes, but did you know that they’re easy to make from home? That’s right, you don’t need to book a table at your local Chinese restaurant to tuck into this delicious starter when Gressingham’s Aromatic Half Crispy Duck* pack makes whipping these up a breeze.
We served ours as part of a wider feast for a group to enjoy, but this pack is also perfect for a starter for two. The duck has been seasoned with an authentic recipe of herbs and spices that really is quite something, and the meat is tender and easy to shred. Plus, all of Gressingham’s ducks are bred, hatched and reared on Red Tractor assured farms across East Anglia so it gets a big thumbs up from us!
We chopped up some cucumber and spring onions for our pancakes (not included in the pack), and served it alongside some of our favourite Chinese snacks – vegetable spring rolls, crispy seaweed, chicken chow mein, sweet chilli dipping sauce and prawn crackers. What are your favourite Chinese nibbles?
If you’re planning on hosting the ultimate Chinese night in and are planning on serving these pancakes you’ll need a roasting tin with rack, chopping board and two forks to shred. To serve we recommend pulling out all the stops by impressing guests with chopsticks and stands, perfectly sized side plates, dipping bowls and serving bowls and boards.
