As I have mentioned earlier on this blog, I couldn't be a proper vegetarian because it would be too difficult for me to give up some of my favourite meat dishes, and Peking Duck is one of them. I love having it in a restaurant; I do prepare it myself from time to time. But “time” is a key word here: sometimes there is simply not enough time to either wait for the duck to marinate or to make pancakes.
This is when these wraps come in very useful as they will be ready in approx. 35-40 minutes if made from scratch. But when leftovers from a roast chicken are used, then the time needed to make them will be even shorter. They are great as a snack, but if served with a salad, they will be also very good as a complete dish for lunch or even a light dinner.
