Aromatic Crispy Duck ("香酥鴨" Heung So Aap) is a dish very similar to Peking Duck. It is very popular in the United Kingdom, where it was first introduced in the latter half of the twentieth century. The difference with the preparations is that the duck is first marinated with spices then steamed until tender, and finally deep-fried until crispy. The meat has less fat and is drier and crispier compared to that of Peking Duck or traditional Roast Duck.
A favourite method of eating Aromatic Crispy Duck is to shred the duck and roll them up with raw cucumber slices, spring onions, and a dash of Hoi -Sin sauce (also known as Duck Sauce). The Aromatic Crispy Duck is one of Royal Gourmet's top sellers and is served in many of London's top Chinese restaurants.

Serving Suggestion: Once the duck is thoroughly cooked, place on a serving plate with plenty of room to shred the duck. Use a fork and spoon, shred the skin and meat of the duck into thin strips. This is then ready to wrap with duck pancakes. Serve together with hoisin sauce, baton sliced spring onions and cucumbers (not included). Can be serve as a start or main.

Really impressed with the exceptional quality and flavour of the duck. The pack contains two generously sized duck halves. Cook one which is enough for 2 or 3 people and freeze the other half. Simple to cook in the oven and it doesn't exude loads of fat in the process. Found it easy to shred the crispy yet moist and delicious duck meat. So much better than what's offered in the supermarkets. Once you've tried this brand, there's no going back.
Food was delicious!
This duck is really tasty. I think it needs 10 mins more cooking time than instruction to be crispy.
