Duck Fried Rice with Cheese :)


Yes, I wanted to be rather adventurous when I prepared for my dinner yesterday :). I added shredded smoked cheese as the topping for the duck fried rice - after trying Budae Jjigae (Korean Ramen) with cheese last week and liked it, I thought, why not adding cheese as well now to my fried rice? I have to say, the combination works well, honestly! But of course if you prefer normal, traditional fried rice, you don't have to add shredded cheese on top of your fried rice.

By the way, I used ready-made Peking duck breast which I bought in a local Asian grocery store. If you cannot find ready-made Peking duck breast, you just have to marinade the duck with star anise and cinnamon powder, a bit of soy sauce and sugar before you bake or roast it.
