I served my duck with potatoes, family-style. Delicious!

I substituted Chinese cooking wine for the sherry. The tastes were beautiful! Although I will cook it less next time as I thought it could be a bit juicier.

Beautiful. Had this with egg fried rice and stir fry veg. Yummy. Smoked the kitchen out a bit tho.

Not bad. Recipe worked according to plan. Definitely an Asian feel to the end result.

The meat was juicy, absolutely perfect! I made a smaller piece (one pound) and adjusted the quantities for 2, it worked fine. And with a simple salad & homemade vinaigrette, just great. Thanks!

I substituted port for the sherry.... this turned out wonderfully, and the duck was very moist! Next time I'll start at 450 to render the fat and then come down to 350 for cooking for an hour or so. I prefer duck NOT well-done, but even this recipe (well done) left the duck moist and yummy!
