Thai Monkey Duck Bites

August 9, 2013


1/2 cup dry sherry

1 tablespoon Thai Monkey Sauce

1 tablespoon peanut oil

1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root

2 skinned, boned duck breast halves

16 whole water chestnuts, drained

8 slices bacon, cut in half


Whisk the sherry, Thai Monkey Sauce, peanut oil, and ginger together in a mixing bowl until evenly blended. Cut the duck breast into 16 pieces and place into the marinade along with the water chestnuts; toss to coat. Set aside to marinate at room temperature for 1 hour. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Drain the marinade from the duck meat and discard. Place a duck piece onto a water chestnut, and wrap with half a bacon slice. Secure with a toothpick, and place onto a broiler pan. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Broil until the bacon is just crisp, about 10 minutes, turning once.
