Glynn Purnell’s Duck Spring Rolls
A popular dish for a special occasion, this curry is quick to prepare because it is made with roasted duck. Unusual additions of sweet lychees and cherry tomatoes counteract the richness of the duck meat and curry gravy. Feel free to use pineapple instead of lychees if preferred.
Plum sauce and duck are a perfect marriage which is enhanced further with the addition of lychees in this dish, for that special occasion. Duck, when cooked in a Chinese household, is always served well done, but of course you may cook it to your preference.
Rice noodles can sometimes taste a little bland but the addition of Wing Yip Ginger and Spring Sauce complements the duck. Lightly toasted sesame seeds and wilted watercress add crunch and flavour.
A different way to roast duck, the sweetness of the sauce and the tartness of the mango salsa complement the duck. Left over duck can be made into a salad or wraps.
What do you do with left over Christmas turkey and ham. This spicy family favourite is very versatile and is suitable for any left over meat – roast turkey, ham, beef and pork – even chipolata sausages. A mixture of different meats can be used together.

This is a good way to use up left over take away roast duck. Tortilla wraps are now sold in most supermarkets. A nice lighter option full of oriental flavour. Alternatively, traditional pastry pancakes are available from Wing Yip stores in frozen form
