Fire up the braiser and get ready to make some duck carnitas.

Ever heard the old saying “When in London, eat tacos?” Yeah, we hadn’t either until we encountered Breddos Tacos, a Mexican joint in London’s Clerkenwell neighborhood that’s gotten rave reviews for its fresh tortillas, hot salsas, wood-grilled meats, seamless Asian inflections and succulent duck carnitas. Their eponymous new cookbook is packed with all their hits, so pick up a copy and fire up the grill. 

This is an awesome dish to serve up at dinner parties or get-togethers as a canapé. By using baby gem lettuce as the tortilla (the Koreans call it ssam), it feels light and healthy, but it always delivers on flavour. The best thing about this recipe is that you can use any leftover duck for grilled cheese sandwiches, nachos and salads.
