Chef John's Easy "Peking Duck" Lettuce Cups
In this video, Chef John teaches you how to make a perfect party appetizer. Inspired by the Peking duck, this version is similar in flavors but is much easier in preparation. First, you’ll season duck legs with Chinese five-spice powder and roast them low and slow in the oven. While the legs are roasting, whisk up hoisin sauce with lemon juice, sesame oil and a bit of hot sauce. This will be your drizzling sauce for the lettuce cups. Right before serving, crisp up the duck meat and fill the lettuce cups, garnishing with scallions, cucumber, and sesame seeds. Get Chef John’s recipe for Easy "Peking Duck" Lettuce Cups.
