Deep-fried marinated duck w/glutin. rice

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 Duck; 4 to 5 pounds
1 Scallion
3 Or
4 slices Fresh ginger root
3 tablespoons Soy sauce
2 tablespoons Sherry
1 tablespoon Honey
1 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Glutinous rice
Oil for deep-frying

1. Bone duck, keeping its shape and skin intact (see "HOW-TO SECTION").

Place in a bowl.

2. Mince scallion and ginger root. Mix well with soy sauce, sherry, honey and salt. Add to duck and let stand 1 hour, turning occasionally.

3. Drain duck, reserving marinade. Hang up to dry over a drip pan in a cool, airy place.

4. Meanwhile cook glutinous rice. Add reserved marinade and blend in; stuff mixture into duck and sew up securely or skewer.

5. Heat oil until boiling. Using a wire basket or long-handled Chinese strainer, gently lower in duck and deep-fry, turning and basting, until crisp and golden. Drain on paper toweling.

6. Let cool slightly, then cut in ½-inch slices. Serve hot or cold with stuffing on the side.
