Duck Breast Stir Fry with Pineapple

OK this recipe consists of two ingredients we’ve been waiting for weeks to try out: duck breast and pineapples. And they are finally on sale! At first we didn’t plan to mix them together. However, doing a bit search on Google, there are actually some great recipes out there using both. We thought it would be worth trying so here comes this sweet taste dish πŸ™‚ The original recipe is 净撨炒鸭丁 from δΈ‹εŽ¨ζˆΏ. The duck breast has some fat but you won’t feel it because of the sweet and sour taste of the pineapple.

Duck Breast Stir Fry with Pineapple

  1. What great flavours. This looks fab, I can’t wait to try, it’s been far too long since I had duck breast.

  2. Yum this looks so good! Duck is one of my favourite meats, I’m allergic to pineapple but I’m sure I could swap it out with something else and keep it yummy!

      Thank you Michelle! Duck meat really tastes differently. I think you can definitely replace pineapple with something sweet.

      Thank you Jhuls! Just curious, what was the dish you had like?

      1. Jhuls says:

        We call it ‘Pato-Tim’… I’m not even sure. I think it’s something like oven-roasted duck? One of my friend’s Aunt brought it for our gathering and it was delicious. I have only eaten twice, I think, but I never forgot how I loved it.
