Normally Peking duck takes over 24 hours to make, however this dish — which is inspired by the ingredients used in the traditional Chinese recipe — comes together in twenty short minutes. Duck breasts are used instead of a whole duck, making for a quick cook time. The fragrant, syrup-like sauce is a blend of fresh orange juice, sesame oil, and Sriracha. To make this exciting dish — from our friends at MyRecipes.com — tonight,
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
2 (8-ounce) packages boneless duck breast halves, thawed and skinned
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)
4 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1/2 cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut lengthwise into 8 strips
2 green onion tops, cut into thin strips
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
