What to do with duck crackling?

I have a fairly substantial amount. Any suggestions of what to do with it other than just eating it like chicharrones?

I don’t have the recipe but my mom has this old cookbook from Puebla Mx hat has a guacamole which has a huge amount of chicarrones ground and mixed in. Doesn’t hold up for long periods of time but is really good.

Something like that might be fun to try

Do you have any leftover duck meat? You could make a duck version of the Ken2 Salad at Aburiya Raku. They put crackling on it.

No meat left. I’m thinking maybe grind it up and sprinkle on pasta.

Good… like duck crackling breadcrumbs?

Yeah, like Sicilians do with toasted breadcrumbs.

I like pasta with breadcrumbs. Ground crackling is even better.

Fried rice.

Also, add to tofu curry.

DCLT … duck crackling lettuce tomato


I got it: duck crackling carbonara.

Now I wish I’d hung on to more of the fat. I guess I can substitute goose fat.


we use cracklings in a lot of dry noodles (sapp’s jade noodle for example) as a topping.

I think that’s exactly where I got the idea.

That’s a good idea!

Something like this with a duck fat mayo sounds good to me. Maybe some lightly oven dried tomatoes if really good tomatoes aren’t to be found.


It’s great for stuffing into sausages
