This is a beautiful and flavoursome recipe for anyone who’s curious about cooking from scratch! It’s simple and delicious.
I found the original recipe here: http://hungerhunger.blogspot.co.uk/2007/04/super-yummy-soy-sauce-duck.html
I’m basically just repeating it because I want to spread the word!
- 1 whole duck
- 200ml Light Soy Sauce
- 300ml Water
- 150g sugar (I used granulated)
- 4 Tbsp veg oil (any oil will do!)
Add the oil and the sugar to a cold pan. Then add the heat, and let the sugar melt. Be very careful if you’re using a non-stick pan that you don’t scrape the bottom of it too much before the sugar has melted. The sugar should turn a golden brown colour – if it goes too dark it will be quite bitter so be careful of that.
After the sugar has melted, add the duck and sear both sides of it to really lock in the flavour later on. It should be a golden brown colour on the outside.
Add the water and the soy sauce and cover the pan and let it simmer for 1 hour (until meat is tender but not too soft).
Remove the duck and slice into portions and either pour what’s in the pan over the duck or serve on a side plate.
It’s delicious. I suggest serving with thick noodles, beansprouts, cucumber and spring onion.
Let me know what you think!
