This Asian Flavoured Low-Calorie Wrap Will Blow Your Mind
Hot, sweet, salty and sour and umami are the four main flavour building blocks of many south-east Asian meals. This dish has all five in spades!
We slow roasted the duck legs in a low-oven for a good hour and a half then allowed them to rest as cool for a few moments. What this gave us was the juiciest and tender duck flesh we could hope for. It practically fell off the bone and was quickly shredded up with a gentle forking. Next, we made a simple dressing - soy, lime, sweetener, chilii, garlic, ginger, mint, coriander and tossed the duck in a couple of spoonfuls of that.
Assembling your Low-Calorie Wrap
For the assembly of the dish, we added the dressed duck to a few choice salad ingredients - the unusual ingredient here being watermelon (trust us - you'll be putting it in all your salads once you've tried it - it acts as the perfect palette cleanser with every mouthful).
As ever, with Lo-Dough, it can be used straight out of the packet, but for a perfect tortilla-thin wrap, we recommended flattening it out with a rolling pin.
