"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.

  4. Broil until the bacon is just crisp, about 10 minutes, turning once.
