Deep-fried sweet-and-pungent duck

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
Sweet-and-pungent sauce
1 Duck; 3 to 4 pounds
2 Eggs
¾ cup Flour
2 tablespoons Water
½ teaspoon Salt
Oil for deep-frying

1. Prepare a sweet-and-pungent sauce (see recipes).

2. Cut duck meat in 1-½-inch cubes, each with some skin.

3. Beat eggs lightly and blend to a smooth batter with flour, water and salt. Dip duck cubes in batter to coat.

4. Heat oil to boiling. Add duck cubes a few at a time and deep-fry until golden. Drain on paper toweling.

5. Meanwhile reheat sweet-and-pungent sauce. Pour over duck and serve.

VARIATION: Leave duck whole and bone it, keeping its shape and skin intact (see "HOW-TO SECTION"). Brush with 1 egg, beaten; then coat with fine bread crumbs. Repeat. Deep-fry as above, then cut in bite-size pieces. Serve with the sweet-and-pungent sauce.
