1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon hoisin sauce (Asian section of grocery store)

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar

Combine sliced duck with soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Marinate for 30 minutes. Drain ducks. Stir-fry duck breasts in hot peanut oil for 45 to 60 seconds over high heat in a wok or skillet. Transfer to paper towels to cool. For each egg roll, lay the wrapper on a flat surface. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the cabbage on the lower third of the wrapper, forming an area of 1 inch tall by 3 inches wide. Arrange apricots and cooked duck on top of cabbage. Turn in sides of wrapper to just overlap stuffing. Begin rolling egg roll by starting at the edge nearest you and rolling away from you, like a burrito. When you get to the edge, moisten it with a little water or the cornstarch mixture to help it seal. Place egg roll in hot oil, enough to submerse it. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Drain fried rolls on paper towels. Combine sauce ingredients and serve with fried egg rolls.

Duck and Smoked Oyster Appetizer

4 duck breast fillets, skin removed

1 can smoked oysters

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

12 to 15 thin slices prosciutto (or substitute partially cooked bacon)


Cut each duck breast into 3 to 4 pieces. Lightly pound each piece until it’s about 1/4-inch thick. Put oysters and the liquid, lemon juice, Italian seasoning and garlic salt in a small bowl. Toss and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes. Lay prosciutto slices out flat on a clean work surface. Place 1 oyster and 1 piece of duck on one end of each prosciutto slice. Roll up snugly and secure with skewers. Grill, pan-sear or broil until prosciutto is browned. Serve with favorite dipping sauce.
