How to make it
- Roast the poblano directly over a gas flame or under the broiler, turning, until charred. Let cool. Peel, seed and chop the poblano.
- Preheat oven broiler until hot. For easy clean up, line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Put tomatoes, tomatillos and garlic and put under broil. Broil turning the vegetables a couple of times until charred. Peel the garlic; transfer to a food processor. Add the tomatoes, tomatillos, poblano, red pepper flakes and scallion (or green onion) and pulse until chunky. Add the lime juice and season the salsa with salt and just a little sugar.
- Shred the duck meat. Put in a small baking dish and combine with the soy sauce and five-spice powder. Heat in a small skillet stovetop; in a small baking dish in the oven; or, heat quickly in a microwave oven just until heated through.
- Serve the tortillas with the salsa, duck, and cilantro.
