Another leftover dish that was as good as the duck the first time around… Fried rice is a such an easy format for leftovers, but with a really flavorful duck, the rice is transformed into a flavorful all-in-one dish.
You know the drill, take previously cooked and preferably cooled or cold rice and break it up from clumps. Chop up all the ingredients in the photo above (onions, garlic, spring onions, red bell pepper, carrots, pickled carrots and radish, dried chinese mushrooms reconstituted in warm water and shredded and chopped duck meat). Heat up a wok or large frying pan and add some vegetable oil (peanut oil if you have it) and sauté the ingredients, add the rice and add some hoisin and soy sauce and mix until well combined. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
We served generous portions of fried rice with a dish of choy sum with oyster sauce for an incredibly quick, simple yet delicious and satisfying lunch. Hmmm, the more I think about it, the more I wonder why I haven’t come across a cookbook that focuses on leftover recipes rather than first time dishes… :)
