Roast Duck Larb
Thai Style Spicy Duck Salad w/ Fresh Herbs
Servings: 4-6 | Prep Time: 30 mins
Thai style larb is meat dressed with spicy, herbal, nutty elements. This dish is traditionally made with ground meat (beef, pork, chicken, or fish) but there's no need to limit yourself. If you got free deli dollars from 99 Ranch Market, it's a great way to make use of meat that's already cooked and seasoned. Get the roast duck and easily turn it into roast duck larb. Shred the roast duck meat and julienne just the crispy skin. Toss with fresh herbs: scallions, cilantro, red onion, and mint. Roasted red pepper flakes give it heat and crushed toasted sichuan peppercorns give it an unexpected but wonderful tingling numbness. Galangal gives it a deep earthy flavor and roasted rice powder makes it a little nutty. Your senses will be very happy.
This dish is all prep work. Once the prep work's done, it's only a matter of tossing the ingredients together. The end result is a well-balanced spicy duck salad that takes roast duck to a whole new level. Serve with fresh red lettuce leaves. Goes great with jasmine rice and spicy papaya salad
