These pancakes are filled with moist and tender sous vide duck (delicious, right?) 

The best part of Peking duck is the crisp skin, so we've cooked that separately. The result is that each part is cooked to perfection.

Perfect results in a few simple steps.

Ingredients for 2

  • 2 (8-ounce) skin-on duck breasts

  • 6 tablespoons (88 mL) hoisin sauce

  • 4 tablespoons (59 mL) julienned scallions

  • 4 tablespoons (59 mL) julienned cucumber

  • 12 prepared Peking duck pancakes


  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 135ºF (57ºC).

  • Step 2

    Remove the skin from the duck breasts and reserve. Place skinless breast in a medium zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the dry setting. Place in the water bath and set the timer for 1 1/2 hours.

  • Step 3

    About 10 minutes before the duck is finished, slice the reserved skin into 1x3 inch (2x6 cm) strips. Fry the skin in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until fully rendered and crisp, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 0

      When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Remove the duck breasts from the bag and pat dry. Slice into bite-sized pieces. Discard any cooking liquid.

    • Step 1

      Serve duck wrapped in the pancakes with hoisin, scallions, cucumber, and crisp skin strips.
