Introduction: How to Make Crispy Peking Duck Delight
In this instructable I will show you how to make crispy Pecking duck delight. It is easy to make and very delicious. You only need four basic ingredients: Peking duck, pancakes, Hoisin sauce and spring onion.
I use boneless Peking duck as it is easy to cook and it takes less long than Peking duck on the bone. I preheat the oven at 437 ℉/225℃ the take a large piece of thin foil. The Peking duck from Mr Duck contains two pieces of Peking duck which I put on top of the aluminium foil skin up. As the skin of a duck contains a lot of fat the duck should be roasted skin up to prevent the meat from drying out. Then the duck goes into the oven for at least 30 minutes. If the skin is not yet crispy extend the oven time with time slots of 5 minutes. If you want to intensify the taste of the skin brush it with light soya sauce. Season with salt if desired although I think that Peking duck is already quite salty.
While the Peking duck is in the oven cut a spring onion Julienne. You can add carrots and cucumber sliced Julienne as well. Take the duck out of the oven and shred with two forks or slice in really thin slices.
Heat a pan with boiling water and a bamboo steamer to warm some Peking duck pancakes.
Take some Peking duck, add the spring onion and the hoisin sauce and you are ready to eat. As a side dish I made shrimp egg fried rice but a bowl of white rice also tastes really well with this dish.

Step 4: Notes
The skin of duck is quite salty so salt is not really necessary but can be added to taste.
I usually prepare one whole Peking duck and store half. The other half gets stored in the freezer. When you reheat, make sure you first defrost the Peking duck then heat in the oven again at 437 ℉/225℃ and heat for 10 to 15 minutes.
