Description of the meal: Peking Duck is a Chinese delicacy known for its crispy skin and succulent meat. Traditionally served with thin pancakes, hoisin sauce, and sliced scallions, it's a dish that requires careful preparation but rewards with rich flavors. We are going to supplement the recipe with Dragons Breath


  • 1 Peking duck (about 5-6 lbs)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced
  • Dragon's Breath, for dipping
  • Mandarin pancakes (store-bought or homemade)


  1. Rinse the duck inside and out; pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl, mix honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and five-spice powder to create the glaze.
  3. Brush the duck with the glaze, ensuring an even coating.
  4. Hang the duck in a cool, dry place for at least 6 hours or overnight to air-dry.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Roast the duck for 1.5 to 2 hours or until the skin is crispy and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  6. While still warm, carefully separate the skin from the meat using a knife or spatula.
  7. Serve the Peking Duck with Mandarin pancakes, Dragon's Breath, and sliced scallions.
