Makes about 48
1 Chinese roast duck
(purchase fresh from Asian market)
12 scallions (shallots/spring onions)
4 carrots, peeled and julienned
4 flour tortillas
1/2 cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) hoisin sauce,
Remove meat from duck and discard bones. Slice meat and skin into bite-sized pieces about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Trim away root end of scallions, then cut scallions into 1-1/4-inch (3-cm) lengths. Using a sharp knife or kitchen shears, cut a fringe in end of each scallion. Place scallion brushes in a bowl of ice water (scallions will curl in ice water). Place carrots in bowl of ice water with scallions. Chill until ready to serve.
Warm tortillas in a microwave oven for 1 minute or wrapped in aluminum foil in a 275 degrees F. (140 degrees C/Gas 1) oven for 10 minutes. Using kitchen shears, cut tortillas into 3/4-inch by 4-inch (2-cm by 10-cm) strips.
Working in batches, place tortilla strips on work surface. Top each strip with a small amount of duck, 1 scallion curl, 4 to 5 carrot pieces and a dash of hoisin sauce. Roll up and secure with a toothpick.
Serve with hoisin sauce for dipping.
Prepare duck, scallions and carrots 2 hours ahead. Assemble just before serving.
