Mandarin pancakes
  • 2 1/2 cups of plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons of refined sugar
  • 1 Cup of boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  1. Wash the duck, remove the neck and any traces of fat inside.
  2. Hold the duck over the sink and very carefully and slowly pour over the boiling water, turning it so that the water scalsss the whole skin. Have more boiling water ready in case you need it.
  3. Place the duck on a rack placed on a baking sheet. Mix the honey with the hot water and spread it with a brush over the duck. Give two hands to be fully coated. Dry the duck by hanging it in a cool, airy place; or use an electric dryer, in a cold air position. located about a metre away. The skin should be dry, as a blindness to the touch.
  4. Remove the seeds from the cucumber and cut into sticks. Cut the spring onions into pieces of some 8 cm and make thin parallel cuts from the center to the tip. Put them in cold water and the spring onions will open in the form of brushes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 210 degrees C. Roast the duck on the rack of the baking sheet during 30 minutes. Turn it around carefully, without tearing the skin, And do other 30 more minutes. Take it out of the oven and let it go for two minutes. Spread it over a hot fountain.
To prepare Mandarin pancakes
  1. put the flour and sugar in a medium bowl and pour the boiling water over. Remove the mixture well and let it entibiate. Store it on a slightly floured surface until there are no lumps left. Let stand 30 minutes.
  2. Make balls with two tablespoons of dough each; put the roller until they round them up 8 cm in diameter. Paint a round of sesame oil lightly and put another rounder on top. Re-run the roller until you get a pancake out of some 15 cm in diameter. Repeat with the remaining pasta and oil to make some 10 double pancakes. Heat a frying pan and assemble the pancakes one by one. When small bubbles appear on its surface, turn them around and give them on the other side, squeezing the surface with a clean napkin. Pancakes will swell when they're made.
  3. Put them in a fountain and when you try. Separate them in two. Place them piled on a plate and cover them to prevent them from drying out.
To serve
