Duck can be an intimidating or uncommon protein to cook at home. However, Hoisin Duck is a quick and easy recipe to prepare, using duck breast marinated in dark soy sauce, Chinese five-spice containing cinnamon, fennel, star anise, cloves, and Sichuan peppercorns, as well as Shaoxing cooking wine, which has a similar flavor to sherry. This is rubbed into the duck breast and marinated overnight. Next, the duck breast is pan-seared until the skin is crispy and golden brown and then wrapped in homemade Mandarin pancakes. Mandarin pancakes are not like those you would find at an American pancake house; they are made using boiling water, flour, sea salt, and sesame oil. Next, the dough is rested, rolled into a flat tortilla shape, and cooked with sesame oil in a skillet. Finally, the pancakes are filled with cucumber, scallions, hoisin sauce, and sliced crispy duck breast. For a lower-carb option, this recipe can also be made into lettuce wraps using iceberg or romaine lettuce.
