I love roasted duck pancakes, with spring onions and cucumber sticks. The flavours of the accompanying hoisin and plum sauce lend something to the mix which makes these Chinese treats a delight. My version which is super easy to rustle up, using Arabic bread as the base, is perfect for a quick dinner any night of the week. —Kitchen Butterfly
2 rounds of arabic bread - pita or lavash (about 20cm diameter)
2 tablespoons plum sauce
2 teaspoons hoisin sauce
White and green of 1 spring onion, finely sliced
200g Mozarella cheese slices
1 cooked crispy duck breast, sliced thinly
1/2 a cucumber, in thin slices
Coriander leaves, to garnish
In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 230 deg C/475 deg F and set a baking stone (if you have one) onto a rack at the lowest rung of your oven. If you don't have a pizza stone, use a regular baking tray, turned upside down. Alternatively, put on your grill
Using a pastry brush, spread each pizza base with a tablespoon of plum sauce, followed by a teaspoon of hoisin sauce
Over each base, sprinkle a handful of spring onions and put on the mozzarella slices. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of passata over each and top with the duck slices
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven and slice into 4 parts. Top with cucumber slices and coriander leaves
Enjoy, the super light base and crisp edges of this pizza. Yum
For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
