After a visit to the local 99c Market (Asian grocery store), we got inspired by their roasted ducks and decided to make a panini sandwich. We have to admit though, the duck was of pretty poor quality which ruined the sandwich once we ate it, but if we had had a decently home-roasted duck we both feel confident this would have been a great sandwich. We also partly made this because of Ujin, who at the time had been interviewing us for an article in a Chinese youth-magazine. Respectfully we named the sandwich after her.
- 2 slices of white or sourdough bread
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 2 green onions
- 2 oz roasted duck
- 3 tsp roasted tomato sauce
- 1 thin slice of brie
- 1 slice of nectarine
Preparation: Heat the oil in a skillet, and sear the green onions for about 45 seconds on each side. Cut a few slices of nectarine (one needed per sandwich), and sear on the skillet until there are visible grill marks (see photos).
Place grilled onions, roasted tomato sauce, duck, grilled nectarine and finally the brie on the sandwich, and then close it with the other piece of bread. Rub the outside of the sandwich with olive oil (or spray it with oil). Heat up the panini grill, and grill the sandwich on medium-hot until it is golden brown. Enjoy while hot.
