CRISPY DUCK. I've always thought one of the best ways to eat duck was as the Chinese do, but I had never thought it would be so easy to cook. I say "cook". I do nothing except cut some fat off the duck and sit it on a rack on a roasting tin and put it in the oven for hours on end. Then, I take it out, set to with some forks and put some shop-bought Chinese pancakes on to steam.
The ultimate fast food, prawns are quick to cook and great for soups, pasta, curries, tapas and so much more. Have a go at Easy Thai prawn curry or for a more challenging dish, Gordon Ramsay's Prawn and leek gratin with homemade hollandaise makes a perfect party starter. Both ready in just 20 minutes!
Sweet and Sour sauce recipe: 1 cup water, 1 1/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup orange juice. Mix together and boil in saucepan. Once boiling add cornstarch mixed with cold water to boiling mixture. Continue adding cornstarch/water till desired consitency is reached. I used about 2 tsps cornstarch with 1 tbsp water. A few drops of food coloring to add color. Of course I used red so it would resemble the Chinese Buffett sauce.
