IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCK....SALLYE

This is definitely an occasional treat, as duck is very rich in fats and texture.

This is a variation of a recipe given me by a Laotian friend. She grows her own herbs and spices but I have just chosen to use five spice powder, standard hoisin and soy sauce.

Feel free to experiment with the spices.
