The sour and spicy flavor of lemon duck is not just the credit of lemon. In fact, sour pepper, sour mustard head, sour ginger, mashed garlic and so on should be added when frying. Before coming out of the pot, add salted lemon and perilla, and the salted lemon can only be put in after being seeded, otherwise, it will become bitter after cooking for a long time, and the fragrance will be lost.

  • Step 1, Boil a pot of boiling water. After the water boils, put the cut duck meat in and remove the duck blood.
  • Step 2, Blanch for about 1 minute, turn the duck into three or four mature, then take it out, and rinse it with cold water.
  • Step 3, Open the fire and heat the pot. After the pot is hot, pour a small amount of oil and put ginger and garlic in it to explode.
  • Step 4, After the flavor comes out, put the duck in the pot and fry until fragrant.
  • Step 5, Stir fry until the duck turns a little brown. Pour a large bowl of rice wine to completely remove the fishy smell of the duck. Cover the lid, simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, and simmer the duck oil out.
  • Step 6, The Golden Duck oil runs out. If there is too much oil, you can pour it out and leave a thin layer of oil at the bottom of the pot, but you can’t have any oil at all, otherwise, it won’t taste good.
  • Step 7, Take more than 3 kg of duck as an example and put 30g of sugar to color the duck.
  • Step 8, Add a little salt and some hot water. If you have bone soup at home, you can stew it with bone soup. It tastes more delicious. But never use cold water. Because cold water will shrink the duck and make it taste bad.
  • Step 9, Continue to simmer for 15 minutes, then put a little oyster sauce, pour in sour Chinese onion, pepper and sour ginger, and stir fry for one minute. The sour material cannot be put too early, otherwise, it will not only taste bad, but also cook rotten, and the taste is not good.
  • Step 10, Before coming out of the pot, mix the sour lemon and sour plum sauce in a ratio of 1:1, pour it into the pot and stir well. The lemon duck can come out of the pot.
