duck fried rice

several weeks ago
i tried my hand at crispy duck
and boy was that somethin'

do you remember cartoon eating
where after eating a big meal
they would use the bones of whatever they ate
to pick their teeth

after all the work that went into that duck
that was me
i wasn't going to let a single bit of it 
go to waste

it became several meals
(but i did draw the line at picking my teeth with it) 
one of which
is this easy and simple
duck fried rice

it might not be authentic
but it is G double O

try it
see what you think
duck fried rice
1 Tbs or so peanut or vegetable oil
1 cup cooked duck--chopped or shredded with skin
(if you are looking for a recipe, i have one here)
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 tsp finely chopped garlic
handful of fresh cilantro--stemmed
1 egg--lightly whisked
2 Tbs hoisin sauce
2 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp mirin
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp (more or less if you like/dislike heat) hot chili sauce
dash sesame oil

in a small bowl, mix together the hoisin, soy, mirin, ginger, chili sauce and sesame oil.  set aside. place wok on high heat and once heated, add the peanut or vegetable oil.  immediately toss in the duck to crisp up a bit.  add the garlic. do not let the garlic brown. add the egg and stir so it doesn't cook in a lump...push it up the sides of the wok, then toss in the rice and the scallions. stir to break up the rice, but also to incorporate the egg and the other bits into the rice. add the hoisin mixture and cook until it is absorbed. at last minute, toss in the cilantro.  this should all take less than 10-15 minutes to throw together. for the most part, you can increase or decrease the amount of everything in this recipe. it is a matter of taste.  if you want more duck, toss it in problem.  this is a simple dish that is really about what you have on hand, and what you like.  enjoy!
