Peking Duck Pancakes

Peking duck pancakes recipe


  • 1 ½ cups (225g) plain flour
  • 2 tsp sunflower or canola oil
  • 1 tbs char siu sauce (see note)
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 2 tsp Shaoxing wine
  • 55o g duck breast, fat trimmed
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) hoisin sauce
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 green shallots, thinly sliced


1.  Sift flour into a large bowl, add 1/2 cups (125ml) warm water. Using a wooden spoon, stir quickly until ingredients cling together. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes or until smooth.

2. Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll pieces into balls. Flatten slightly. Brush tops of dough with oil.  Stack 2 pieces of dough with the oiled surfaces together.  Roll dough stack into an 18 cm round (about 2-3mm thick). Repeat with remaining dough to make 8 pancakes.

3. Lightly spray a medium non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat.  Cook 1 pancake for 30 seconds each side or until lightly browned.  Pull pancake apart to make 2 thin pancakes. Transfer to plate and cover with foil to keep warm.  Repeat with remaining pancakes to make 16 pancakes.

4. Preheat over to 200oc or 180oc fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine char siu sauce, honey and wine in a small bowl. Set aside.

5. Lightly spray a medium non-stick frying pan with a oil and heat over high heat. Cook duck for 2 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to prepared tray.  Brush with half the char siu mixture and bake, basting every 2-3 minutes with remaining char siu mixture, for 10 minutes or until cooked to your liking.  Transfer duck to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thinly.

6. To serve, spread hoisin sauce over each pancake. Top with duck cucumber and shallots. Roll to enclose filling. Serve.

Note: Char siu sauce is made from fermented soybeans, honey and other spices and has a sweet and spicy flavour.  It is available in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets.
