I've been fancying duck for a meal lately since we tried some in hoi sin sauce wraps at a pub lunch.....but like you do, kept forgetting to add it to my shopping list.
We're having problems at the mo at home, health issues with DH's frail parents and it's stressful so I've been sticking to working out to keep myself sane but wanted something a little different last night to eat, just as a treat. Something that said I was giving us some TLC as at the moment we're concentrating hard on the needs of FIL and his wife and Pete's mum in Canada.
Not for me-comfort food- so had an Aha! moment- Duck in a stir fry and hoi sin sauce, oh yeah, that'll tick all the boxes .
I left the skin on to save adding oil to the wok, fried the duck first, added a ready prepared stir fry mix plus a quartered red onion, a small tin of water chestnuts, some mange tout and finally some frozen peas. It was done and on the table in 10 mins!
It tasted and just to top it off I had 100 grams of Carte D'or Caramel, cinnamon and waffle ice cream.
605 calories the lot and it really hit the spot.
A little of what you fancy does you good- and no empty calories!
