Homemade Peking Duck

I didn’t do the normal drying with fan step as It wasn’t a full duck and it  was still a tasty duck dish regardless. I did mine in stages in fridge which dried the skin out in a container with cling film over top. Not traditional but when in a hurry to do it was a good outcome.

Soups: Thai Tom Yam

Cold night and wanted soup that was healthy. I found Tom Yam Soup Paste that was low in salt for Thai food. Hot chili hit for the dish would be too hot for those who don’t like chili but we do. I used turkey breast fillets instead of prawns and followed the list of ingredients on packet . It simply all goes into a pot and cook until meat is cooked. (Had to add Mushrooms, Green Shallot, Fish Sauce, mushrooms, chili, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf) Cooked on stove in pot.

Loved this one and so did hubby. Will be making it again. Its a lettuce wrap or san choi bau type dish but with Japanese flavours instead of Chinese.
