My life or my dreams

« on: June 22, 2010, 06:59:18 AM »

I asked my friend who love to Asian foods and makes all sort of recipes and she sent me this one. I haven't tried it mainly cause I am not crazy about duck too gamy for me. But I hope you like it

Steamed deep-fried pressed duck (wor shu opp)

4 Servings
Measure Ingredient
cup Almond meats
1  Duck; 4 to 5 pounds
cup Soy sauce
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Sugar
2  Celery stalks
3  Scallions
  Oil for deep-frying
cup Sugar
cup Vinegar
1 tablespoon Catsup
3 drops Hot sauce; more or less
2 teaspoons Soy sauce
teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
2 tablespoons Water
  Head lettuce

. Blanch, toast and sliver almonds. 2. Wipe duck inside and out with a damp cloth. Combine soy sauce, salt and sugar and rub over duck skin. Pour remainder into duck cavity, swishing it around to coat the interior. Drain off excess and discard. 3. Put duck in a deep heatproof bowl. Cut celery in 3 or 4 Pieces; trim off scallion roots and arrange over duck. Steam 2 hours by the bowl-in-a-pot method (see "HOW-TO SECTION"). 4. Drain duck, reserving liquid for stock. Let bird cool slightly; then bone, leaving skin and original shape intact (see "HOW-TO SECTION"). Transfer duck to a large flat plate or cutting board. 5. With both hands, press down on duck, flattening it to a 3/4-inch thickness. Then sprinkle generously on both sides with cornstarch. Return bird to heatproof bowl and steam 30 minutes more. Let cool, then cut in quarters. 6. Heat oil to boiling. Add duck, one quarter at a time, and deep-fry until golden. Drain on paper toweling. Let cool slightly; then cut bird in 1-1/2 inch squares, each with some skin. Keep warm. 7. In a saucepan, combine sugar, vinegar, catsup, hot sauce and remaining soy sauce and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring. Meanwhile blend remaining cornstarch and cold water to a paste, then stir in to thicken. 8. Shred lettuce and arrange on a serving platter with duck squares on top. Pour sauce over and serve, garnished with toasted almonds.
