Asian duck rolls

Method

  • Soak the shiitakes in warm water for about 30 mins. Then drain well, discard the stalks and slice the caps. 
  • Heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and briefly toss the carrot, wonga bok, garlic and shiitakes. 
  • Add the sauce from the duck with the Chinese wine, stock and Hoisin. Stir well and cook until the mixture is quite dry. 
  • Then add the duck, toss well and briefly cook to just heat through. 
  • Place a pastry sheet on a lightly floured workbench and cut it in half. Then paint the edges with water, spoon some of the duck mixture at the base and roll up, bringing in the side edges as you do so. Repeat the process. 
  • Heat oil in a fryer (or large heavy-bottomed pot) to 180°C and deep fry the rolls until crisp-golden. Drain on kitchen paper towels. 
  • Serve the rolls with lettuce, mint and Hoisin on the side. To eat, roll them up in the lettuce with mint and a sprinkling of Hoisin. Enjoy!
