For an entree designed for nibbling, try this quick and easy recipe idea from Luke Mangan.


Buy a roasted duck from a Chinese barbecue takeaway shop. The par-cooked crepes are found in the freezer section of Chinese supermarkets. They are called "Crepes for Beijing roast duck" and cost about $2.

1 Chinese roasted duck 

1 tsp olive oil

12 par-cooked crepes 

1 leek, white part only, cut into fine strips

3 red chillies, seeded and finely sliced

Oyster sauce


  1. Remove the meat from the duck and discard the bones and fat. Cut the meat into small pieces, or pull it apart. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the duck meat, moving it around the pan over high heat, until it becomes crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, gently pan-fry the crepes for about a minute each side. Place a little duck, some leek and chilli in the centre and roll them up.
  3. Serve warm with oyster sauce for dipping.
