Leftover Turkey Hoisin Sauce Wraps

Leftover Turkey Hoisin Sauce Wraps - now this is a cracking little recipe for your leftover turkey this Christmas. Think of crispy duck and pancakes - those scrummy little pancakes which you fill with shredded duck, hoisin sauce, spring onion and cucumber in Chinese restaurants? Scale it up to a wrap, and swap the duck for leftover turkey. It's incredible.

The leftover turkey is simmered gently in hoisin sauce and a splash of water, so the meat becomes lovely and juicy - no dry bird here. I love the fact that these leftover turkey hoisin wraps are so far from a Christmas dinner - they are just perfect for boxing day, and they take minutes to make. Cut each wrap into four and you have quick and easy buffet food.

My top tip for leftover turkey is to prepare it the day before. You might not feel like stripping a carcass after a full on Christmas dinner, but it's so much harder, and unappealing, once it's been left in the fridge overnight.
