Failure: Salted Duck Soup
I'm not very happy with the result of the original recipe. I felt it lacks the oomph from the sour plum, which I then I sub with tamarind. The closest sub I have.
But even so, cabbage is a poor substitute of swatow.
The fact that I use shredded duck, instead of meat with the bone, is another culprit. But I remedied that with the duck broth (from the bone) I made the other day.
I added a light soy sauce (Maggi) to balance the flavour a little bit more.
Overall, I polished off the whole pot by myself. In one sitting :) It was still sourish & salty & peppery hot with duck meat, but so far off from the one I remembered slurping off a big bowl in Sin Ming, Singapore.
Anyhoo.. I'm sitting on the fence with regards to the recipe (hence I'm not posting it) but I will probably venture on it again one day.
