Method of Cookery

  1. Dice duck meat finely.
  2. Boil down the duck stock to 1 cup.
  3. Place chopped duck into a saucepan and poach for 8 minutes in the reduced stock.
  4. Fry sliced mushrooms with lemon juice in clarified butter. Add to duck.
  5. Shallow fry shallots and when very hot—light a match—pour over whisky, and light quickly. When flames die down, add this to duck mixture with white sauce and parsley stalks. Season with salt and ground peppercorns.
  6. Mold into 2-ounce portions, dip in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs, and deep fry for 2 minutes until crisp and golden. Drain and serve.


Serve with Golden Coast Sauce. Otaki Potatoes, and a plain green tossed salad. A dry red wine goes down well with this dish.
