Crispy Duck Flautas with Orange Sriracha Mayonnaise Recipe: I made these in the past and had amazing results. I felt it only fitting to fire up the deep fryer again in order to bring this recipe to the Cooking Divine website and community. I happen to love the taste of duck and it pairs brilliantly with the jack cheese and Orange Sriracha Mayonnaise.
Technically you could call these duck flautas an Asian-Mexican fusion, which is something you do not see every day. That is part of the reason why I love this recipe so much, anything that steps outside of the norm and tastes this delicious always finds a soft spot in my heart (an stomach). Making flautas is incredibly easy as well, not to mention they are fried and who doesn’t like a good fried appetizer?
The key to this recipe is to drop the duck breast into the fryer for about 2 minutes before assembling the flautas. If you skip this step then the duck will remain chewy and ruin the texture of the recipe. Once you put everything together including the green onions, you will be more then tempted to add this to your top 10 list of appetizers!
