How to make it

  • 1. Cut off head, neck and feet and remove the giblets, set aside for another use (such as soup or gravy).
  • 2. Put the duck in a large bowl or pot.
  • 3. Combine marinade ingredients and pour over duck, be sure duck is covered.
  • 4. Marinate at least 1 hour, agitating occasionally.
  • 5. Fill a wok about 1/3 full of water and bring to a simmer. Place a rack above simmering water and place duck on rack. lay the bacon strips across the duck, cover and steam 2-1/2 hours. Be sure to check the water now and then.
  • 6. Remove duck and let cool, remove the bacon (makes a great BLT sandi) then de-bone: Place duck, breast-side down, on a cutting board. Make a cut along the backbone. Push the meat aside and lift the backbone and rib cage out. Wiggle the thigh and wing bones out.
  • 7. Place duck pieces on a large cutting board, breast-side down. Take a second board and cover duck completely. Gently press down until meat is uniformly compressed, about 3/4 inches thick. You will get some juice running so watch out for that.
  • 8. Prepare wok for steaming again.
  • 9. Sprinkle duck generously on both sides with cornstarch. Gently return duck to steamer rack. Cover and steam 30 minutes.
  • 10. Heat oil in a pot or wok for deep-frying.
  • 11. Cut duck into quarters. Deep-fry until golden brown. Remove from oil; let drain. Cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces.
  • 12. For the sweet and sour sauce; bring ingredients to a simmer and stir to dissolve sugar. Stir in cornstarch mixture to thicken. Brush sauce over duck pieces. Sprinkle with nuts. Serves eight.
  • Served with steamed or fried rice and pickled veggies.
