Many people think that eating winter melon and duck together has aggravated the cooling effect and is not suitable for eating more. In fact, the combination of the two can be described as a rare delicacy in autumn. You can add some hot ingredients and burn it together. Many people add I added Doubanjiang to enhance the flavor. I sometimes add some. The only downside is that the sauce of Doubanjiang is too strong, and its special flavor covers the deliciousness of duck and winter melon. I never add it again.Later, I found a better sauce than Doubanjiang—the hot pot base. Adding some to it tastes much better than Doubanjiang. This time, Cocoa made “Winter Melon Roast Duck”, and added the hot pot base. The roasted duck and winter melon are much better than before, and they are also particularly delicious without adding chicken essence and MSG. The taste is particularly mellow and mellow. The fishy is not greasy and the appetizer is delicious.
