Hunk of Meat Monday: Asian Duck Tacos

My family thinks they don’t like Chinese, Japanese or other Asian food. My family does love duck though. So, since A Latte with Ott, A is having the Iron Chef Duck Challenge, I decided to see if I could get my family to eat an Asian inspired duck dish.

These Asian duck tacos were a huge success. No leftovers. Zero. Zilch. Score!

Thanks to Maple Leaf Farms half roasted duck, this meal is a quick one too.

I grabbed the duck out of the freezer in the morning and threw it in the fridge. When I got home I grabbed a bottle of sesame ginger marinade.

I took the duck out of the package and shredded the duck and then poured 3/4 cup of marinade over top of the duck.

Let it set for about 30 minutes. I sliced up a half a green pepper and mixed into the duck.

Toss the duck into a skillet over medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Then add two sliced green onions into the skillet and cook for a minute or two before turning the heat off.

While the duck is cooking, get your slaw ready. Start by combining sesame oil, vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sugar and Asian seasoning.

I grabbed a bag of bagged slaw and added green onions to the slaw and poured the dressing over top.

Then combine the duck and slaw together on a tortilla shell.
