I know, I have been ranting about my love for duck recently. I just simply love the meat. Being a true Hakka woman, one of my favourite duck menu must be 5-spices duck meat. I am not boastful but I always think my mum cooks the best 5-spices duck; not too salty and sweet and at the same time, the flavour and aroma of 5 spices in the meat. I can eat a big bowl of rice with just duck meat and its gravy. Lol!
After marinated wth 5 spices and salt, the duck is bathed (simmer) in mixture of water, 5 spices, galangal, soy sauce, salt and sugar for about 1 hours. Turn the duck if your water level do not cover the whole bird. Let it simmer under low/medium heat.
The end product! Let's dig. I always take the breast part first.
Side dish! 5-spices hard boiled egg.
Enough drooling over the food. Got to go, appointment for my facial soon. Time to relax after a tiring and busy weekend.
