Today I would like to present you a really irresistible burger experience, which is hard to beat in umami flavors. The Crispy Duck Burger has every feature that makes a good burger. From the texture, to an exciting taste fruit, acidity, sweetness and a pinch of Christmas flavors make everyone’s street food heart beat faster.
The Bun: Here I opted for an alkaline variation with the help of lye or to put it more simply: there is a pretzel bun! But there is not just any pretzel bun. Of course, you can now run to the nearest bakery and choose the dough of your choice or you can try this recipe! I worked with Kansui water, which also helps the ramen noodle to get its yellow color and deep taste. The result has become surprisingly good and crispy is the bun even more!
The salad: What goes best with Christmas duck, dumplings and sauce? Sure, red cabbage! And I’m no exception with a burger. However, I work here with the raw variant, which is transformed into an ultimate salad with the help of acid, ginger and pomegranate. For the obligatory green tint, grilled pok choi will also be sent into the race!
The sauce: The fuel for any fast or street food to combine several components and create an ideal balance. In this case, a strong cream of majo, peanut, sesame and duck stock.
The Star: This is where it gets really exciting! A classic patty is refrained from – but pulled comes into game or to put it “trendy” – yes, it will be a pulled duck burger! Here, the leg is stewed by the duck, pulled and then baked crispy! The advantage here is that you get a strong stock, which provides the basis for a fantastic sauce.
