"This is a great appetizer using wild duck breast. It reminds me of an appetizer I've had at formal gatherings that uses chicken livers."

  1. Whisk the sherry, soy 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.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  3. 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.
  4. Broil until the bacon is just crisp, about 10 minutes, turning once.

I served this as a Christmas Day appetizer. I did not have any dry sherry, so I substituted 1/2 dry vermouth and 1/2 sweet vermouth which worked out well. People really enjoyed this appetizer. It is a bit expensive to prepare at $10 per duck breast...but worth it for a special occasion.

Made this as a Christmas appetizer. Really enjoyed the contrast of flavors. The fat from the bacon was a great compliment to the lean duck meat. Would definetly recommend!
