These are mouthwateringly delicious. Grab a duck from your local Chinese restaurant and you are pretty much good to go.

You'll Need

  • 1/2 Chinese BBQ duck, bones removed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 coriander roots. cleaned and chopped finely
  • 3 spring onions, finely chopped
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 tbs hoisin sauce
  • 1 pckt spring roll wrappers (medium size)
  • rice bran oil
  • Vietnamese mint
  • iceberg lettuce



Chop the duck, including the skin as finely as you can and put it in a medium sized bowl. Add the garlic, coriander roots, spring onions and hoisin and season with pepper. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.

Place a heaped tablespoon of mixture on the end of one wrapper and roll up, firmly,  tucking in the sides as you go. Seal the end with a little water.

Heat a wok with 1 inch of rice bran oil on a high heat. Add the spring rolls, a few at a time. Turn them at intervals to evenly colour the outside a golden brown. This will only take a few minutes. Once done, carefully remove them from the wok and drain them on paper towel.

Serve with iceberg lettuce and Vietnamese mint and icy cold beer..

    Hi Mish,

    We made the duck spring rolls on the weekend. I have not attempted making spring rolls before. They were surprisingly, simple enough, and a huge success with everyone here. We are looking forward to the next recipe!! Linda

      Nice one Linda! I sometimes make them with chopped prawns and pork mince as well, they are so moorish.
