Peking Duck at Home

I’m not sure whether to say “It’s already Tuesday/almost Wednesday!” or “It’s only Tuesday?!” Yeah, it’s been one of those days. I’m trying not to stress too much and mentally reminding myself to take things one thing at a time. I actually have a lot of work to do, but in order to prevent seriously flipping out, I am taking a little break for an hour or two, watching my fav TV guilty pleasure – Hallmark Channel movies that I have on my DVR from over the weekend and writing this here post! Ok, enough of that – let’s move on to this Peking Duck from home.

If you read my Thanksgiving Eats post, I mentioned that my family recently got an electric fryer. Over Thanksgiving dinner, my family and I started listing all the different things – some delicious, some ridiculous, that we could fry. Peking duck came up. It is a dish that we occasionally get at restaurants, but have never made at home but now that we have the fryer it seemed like we finally had the opportunity. My parents bought a cooked duck from the Asian food store, so that part was easy. We just had to make/gather the accoutrements and fry up the duck for a few minutes. It came out great! If you’ve ever had Peking Duck at a restaurant, you can also have the leftover duck meat (the meat that they don’t slice up for the wraps or buns) prepared for lettuce wraps so we did that too. Here’s my photo diary from the meal!
